France: two Muslims linked to jihadi who murdered police couple charged

Two men linked to a jihadi who killed a French police officer and his partner were charged and detained by an anti-terror court on Saturday.

Saad Rajraji, 27, and Charaf-Din Aberouz, 29, were charged with having links to a terrorist group, but not in connection to the Isis-inspired murder of the police couple carried out by Larossi Abballa last Monday.

The two men had been convicted along with Abballa in September 2013 as part of a network to send jihadis to Pakistan, judicial sources close to the investigation said.
