There is no evidence that gunman Mohamed Merah had links with al-Qaeda or other terror groups, a French official has said.
The official, who is close to the investigation into Merah’s killing spree, said there is no sign he had “trained or been in contact with organised groups or jihadists”.
Merah had travelled to Afghanistan and Pakistan, and prosecutors said Merah had claimed he had been in contact with al-Qaeda.
A little-known group claimed responsibility for the killings but the official said the claim appeared opportunistic.
