Paris, France: Scooter terrorist Mohamed Merah 'was not a lone wolf'.
The older sister of the Toulouse scooter killer, Mohamed Merah, had been under surveillance as a possible Islamist activist since 2008.
Souad Merah, 34, provided money, mobile phones and internet addresses to her brother in the months before his murderous attacks in the Toulouse area in March.
She was identified by French internal security services as a possible threat in 2008 – at the same time as another brother, Abdelkader, who has been in custody for six months.
Families of Merah's seven victims called for Souad Merah to be arrested and questioned. Although she was briefly interviewed after the murders, the inquiry has concentrated on the possible role of Abdelkader, Merah's older brother, in inspiring and assisting the killings.
Mohamed Merah, 23, died when police stormed his flat in Toulouse on 22 March after a 32-hour siege. In previous days, he had murdered three off-duty French paratroopers and three children and a teacher outside a Jewish school.
Merah, who filmed his murders, claimed to be working on behalf of al-Qa'ida. Security services believe he was a "lone wolf", inspired by extremist Islamist teaching but acting independently or with the help of his brother. His sister may have played, at the very least, a role in his conversion to radical Islam.

New Delhi, India: Karnataka terror module handlers based in Saudi Arabia.
Investigators probing the activities of busted terror module in Karnataka have found that the handlers of the arrested 'terrorists' were based in Saudi Arabia and most of them were Indians, government sources said. This is the third case where anti-India elements were found to be operating from the Gulf country.
Deported LeT terrorist Abu Jundal and Indian Mujahideen activist Fasih Mahmood, who is still in the custody of Saudi authorities, were running their terror modules from there. "We have found that handlers of those arrested in Karnataka are based in Saudi Arabia. Most of these handlers are Indians and they are in regular touch with ISI operatives," the sources said.
Karnataka police has so far arrested 14 persons after busting a terror module and preliminary investigations showed that the suspects had plans to target Sangh Parivar leaders, MPs, a media owner and two journalists. Those arrested were given the task of gathering information about various terror targets besides expanding their module with the inclusion of new recruits.
Sources said it was a worrying sign that young and educated people have been radicalised and lured into terror activities. "We believe that more people are involved in the module and some more arrests will follow soon," the sources said.
