French police woman and daughter held in inquiry into 2016 Islamist killing

French investigators on Monday detained three men and three women, including a police woman and her daughter, for questioning over their possible role in a 2016 murder of two police officers claimed by extremist group “Islamic State” (IS), a judicial source says.

The policewoman was already interrogated in 2016 in connection with the killings in Magnanville, west of Paris, but nothing was found against her.

She attracted the notice of investigators for having hosted a young woman who was on a police watchlist for possible Islamist radicalization, which she did at the request of her daughter.
