France charges three suspected extremists back from Syria
The trio includes the 29-year-old brother-in-law of Toulouse jihadist Mohamed Merah
Three Frenchmen arrested in Turkey after travelling to Syria were charged Saturday with planning terrorist acts, their lawyer said.
The men, who were the subject of a high-profile judicial bungle this week after their arrest in Turkey, were being charged by an anti-terrorist judge with “criminal association with the aim of planning terrorist acts,” lawyer Pierre Dunac told AFP.
The trio includes the 29-year-old brother-in-law of Toulouse jihadist Mohamed Merah, who was shot dead by police after he murdered seven people, including three children, in a 2012 killing spree.
