Brother of Marseilles attacker was foreign fighter in Syria
Anis Hanachi, 25, was arrested in the northern Italian city of Ferrara, where he had been living with a fellow Tunisian, on Saturday after French authorities issued an international arrest warrant. He is accused of being complicit in his brother’s attack and of participating in a terrorist organization.
His brother Ahmed killed two cousins, both aged 20, on October 1st at Marseille’s Saint-Charles train station before being shot dead by anti-terror troops.
Ahmed had spent several years in Aprilia, a town south of Rome, where he married, and later divorced, an Italian woman in 2008 and was registered as a resident between March 2010 and 2017.
French authorities told their Italian counterparts that Anis had been a jihadist in Syria between 2014 and 2016 and is believed to have radicalized his brother.
