Suspect in Mehra affaire arrested

Le Monde


A 25-year-old man was arrested for suspected complicity in Mohammed Mehra’s attacks in Toulouse last year, which killed 7 people.  The man was taken to court and presented to an anti-terrorism related judge at the High Court of Paris. He is accused of having been complicit in the theft of the scooter, which Mehra later used to commit his killing spree.  Unlike Mehra’s brother, who is being imprisoned since more than a year for complicity in the killing, the 25-year-old is believed to not have been informed about Mehra’s assassination plans. According to his lawyer, the suspect denies to have been aware of any of the plans and repeatedly condemned Mehra’s actions.
