Two men suspected of being accomplices of Islamist terrorist Mohammed Merah were arrested near Toulouse.
Investigators believe the men, arrested Tuesday morning, are believed by investigators to have helped plan a series of deadly attacks in March 2012. One of the suspects was released on Wednesday; the second remained in custody on Thursday.
Merah, a 23-year-old radical Muslim, killed a rabbi and three children in an attack on the Ozar Hatorah Jewish school, now called Ohr Hatorah, on March 19, 2012. The slayings came a few days after Merah gunned down three French soldiers in two drive-by shootings from a scooter near Toulouse. He was shot dead on March 22 during a standoff with police.
French police have arrested and released several people and questioned dozens in connection with the shootings.
