Toulouse gunman was 'not working alone', say police
Friday 24 August 2012
Confidential documents from a French police investigation into the Toulouse gunman who killed seven people earlier this year suggest he was not working alone, it has been claimed.
France's Le Monde newspaper said yesterday that files obtained from the investigation showed that Mohamed Merah made more than 1,800 calls to over 180 contacts in 20 different countries.
He also made several trips to the Middle East and Afghanistan.
Merah killed three soldiers and four Jewish people in a series of gun attacks in March, before being tracked down and killed by police after a 32-hour stand-off ending in a shoot-out at his apartment. Le Monde said the confidential documents, obtained from the DCRI intelligence agency, showed that Merah was placed under tighter surveillance after returning from a long trip to Afghanistan in March 2011.
