French police arrest four in anti-jihadist raid

Special police forces in France arrested four men in the southern French town of Lunel on Tuesday in an operation aimed at breaking up jihadist networks, a police source said. France has stepped up its fight to break up jihadist recruitment cells after 17 people were killed in three days of violence by Islamist militants in Paris earlier in January. The attacks, one at the headquarters of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and the other at a Jewish supermarket, were launched by men who had connections to jihadist recruiters. Since then, police in Belgium, France and Germany have interrogated dozens of Islamist suspects, and in Paris last week French prosecutors asked for formal investigations of four men suspected helping prepare the Jan.7-9 attacks in Paris.
