French Arrest German Man for Alleged Attack Link

A German man suspected of links to the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States and a suicide attack on a Tunisian synagogue last year has been arrested in France, police said Friday. Christian Ganczarski, 36, was arrested Monday, one day after French police detained a Moroccan man also wanted in connection with the attacks on New York and Washington blamed on the al Qaeda network headed by Osama bin Laden. Ganczarski was suspected of links to the synagogue bombing in Djerba in April 2002 and the September 11 attacks, but his possible role in both was unclear, the police spokesman said. He had previously been arrested in Saudi Arabia but was later released, according to German weekly Der Spiegel. A German magistrate last month rejected an application for an arrest warrant for Ganczarski. Thursday, Moroccan Karim Mehdi was put under official investigation — one step short of pressing charges in France — for allegedly belonging to a criminal gang with links to terrorist activities.
