Yeah, I’m on a France fix today….

According to the BBC, France has placed four men just released from Guantanmo into cusody.

The four appeared before judges Jean-Louis Bruguiere and Jean-Francois Ricard after being detained at the headquarters of the French internal security service, the DST.

Mourad Benchellali, Nizar Sassi, Imad Kanouni and Brahim Yadel were placed under investigation on suspicion of associating with a terrorist organisation.

Two of the men – Mr Benchellali and Mr Sassi – are also accused of using false passports in order to travel to Afghanistan.


At least two of the suspects were known to the French intelligence services before they reappeared in US detention.

Most of the other prisoners that have been repatriated back to their respective European countries have not been re-detained.
