Mohamed Merah admitted shooting dead seven people before he himself was killed by police in a raid on March 22.

The brother of the gunman who admitted to shooting dead seven people in and around the French city of Toulouse was set to be brought before a judge in Paris on March 25.

Abdelkader Merah, the older brother of Mohamed Merah, is being investigated for links to the three attacks for which his brother, who was killed by police in a raid on March 22, claimed responsibility.

French newspaper “Le Parisien” said he faced charges for complicity in murder or for criminal conspiracy in a terrorist venture.

His wife, who was detained with him on March 21 in Toulouse and was also brought to Paris, was released without charge on March 24.
