Brother of Toulouse Attacker on Trek against Radicalism

Friday, 17 March 2017 09:38 AM

REIMS, France (AP) — Five years after his brother killed seven people in the name of Islam, Abdelghani Merah is now walking across France to preach tolerance and warn against the dangers of religious radicalism.

Mohamed Merah killed three soldiers in southern France in March 2012. He then turned his anger on the Ozar Hatorah Jewish school in Toulouse, where he killed a rabbi and his two sons, 4 and 5, and an 8-year-old girl.

Abdelghani has denounced the attacks and the radicalization of Mohamed and another brother, Abdelkader. Mohamed was killed in a police shootout and Abdelkader faces trial.

Abdelghani left Marseille on Feb. 8 for his walk across France and hopes to meet the justice minister in Paris on Sunday to encourage stronger de-radicalization measures.

Islamic extremists have killed 235 people in France since January 2015.
