DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – A Florida-based online arms seller says it can’t confirm that a gun it sold is linked to Islamic militants in the Paris attacks.

The head of a Serbian arms factory told The Associated Press this week that the M92 semi-automatic pistol’s serial number matched one delivered to Delray Beach-based Century Arms in May 2013.
