UPDATE: Strasbourg Christmas market killer’s alleged gun source faces preliminary terror charges


A man suspected of supplying the gun used to kill five people at a Christmas market lat week in Strasbourg, France, was indicted on preliminary terror charges, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

A French judicial official who requested anonymity told The Associated Press that the man appeared before a judge and was charged with criminal association with terrorists, as well as possessing and supplying arms in connection with a terrorist enterprise.

The article goes on to state the following:

The France Info news service reported that the man was a relative of attacker Cherif Chekatt, but did not identify him or say how he was related to the gunman. Chekatt, 29, died in a shootout with police in Strasbourg last Thursday, two days after the attack.

Two other people were arrested and detained Monday as part of the terror investigation the Paris prosecutor’s office has been conducting into the attack. They also were suspected of helping to supply Chekatt with the weapon. Police previously questioned and released Chekatt’s parents; two of his brothers were questioned by police last week and released.
