France arrests 5 over suspected links to jihadists in Syria and Iraq

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Paris (dpa) - French police have arrested five people as part of an investigation into suspected offences of terrorist conspiracy and financing terrorism, a judicial source said on Tuesday. 

Investigators are looking into the suspects‘ possible links to persons who left France for the conflict zone in Syria and Iraq, as well as whether they might have provided funding for those persons, the source said. 

Hundreds of French citizens are thought to have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join Islamic State and other Islamist extremist organizations since the Syrian conflict broke out in 2011.

In November, the country‘s top anti-terrorism prosecutor, Francois Molins, said that overall about 690 French citizens who had joined the Islamic State extremist organization were thought to still be in Syria and Iraq.

About 100 of them are thought to have been arrested by Syrian Kurdish forces, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said last month.
