French Arrest German Suspected of September 11 Link

France has arrested a German man suspected of links to the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States and a suicide attack at a Tunisian synagogue last year, police said on Friday. Christian Ganczarski, 36, was arrested on Monday, one day after French police detained a Moroccan man also wanted in connection with September 11 attacks, blamed on the al Qaeda network. A French police spokesman said Ganczarski was suspected of links to the synagogue bombing in Djerba in April 2002 and the September 11 attacks, but it was not clear what role he may have played in either. German prosecutors said Ganczarski was not believed to have taken a direct part in the synagogue attack, carried out by a man driving a truck loaded with cooking gas. They said an intercepted telephone conversation with the truck driver indicated that Ganczarski knew of the timing of the attack beforehand through his close connections with leading al Qaeda figures and did nothing to prevent it.
