Good News: French Missing Three Terrorists

One of the terrorists is the brother in law of Mohammed Merah who carried out the Toulouse and Montauban shootings.

Confusion reigned Tuesday over the whereabouts of three suspected French jihadists arrested in Turkey who include the brother-in-law of Toulouse killer Mohammed Merah after an apparent bungle by authorities.

The interior ministry had announced that the three men, including the 29-year-old husband of Merah's sister Souad, had been arrested by French police on their arrival at Paris' Orly airport after being sent back from Turkey.

But it later turned out that the men had not landed in Paris at all, but were put on a flight to the southern city Marseille where they were -- to their apparent surprise -- able to walk freely from the airport.

1 I read more details of this story. It seemed like the Turks did not bother to tell the French that these terrorists were landing in Marseille rather than Paris. Nonetheless each immigration border control around France including airports should have had a list of the names of these terrorists on their watch list. What a complete cock up !!!
