Admin edit: Country bashing is not allowed!



PARIS, Oct 10 (AFP) - A young French woman was detained by police in Paris
Monday as part of an investigation into underground groups allegedly
recruiting volunteers to fight against US troops in Iraq.

The 18-year-old woman, who has not been named, is believed to have been the
girlfriend of a man who left to join the insurgency and was killed.

Last month six men were arrested in the Paris suburbs as part of the same
investigation, and all were released after the maximum four days of
questioning allowed by French law.

Intelligence services have identified about 20 men who have been recruited
in France for the Iraqi insurgency, of whom six are believed to have died in
combat or suicide attacks.

if this is true it is rather disturbing seeing how the french are our allies. i am glad that they are investigating the situation, and i wonder if the french citizens are of mideast decent or not.

Hmm, I really doubt that they are FRENCH by blood, France has almost 5 million Muslims lving there. Many of them have been suspected members of terror networks and have been involved with other various extremist sects. So there is a high chance they are fanatical Muslims.

An individual or small group of individuals do not make a country or culture. Being aware of these types of operations and proactively trying to stop them is a good thing.

Being arrested for four days is enough to put the spotlight on someone. Is she still recruiting? Is she working for the French Government? Did she give information? Is she being watched by the government?

How effective of a recruiter can she be now, after 4 days of questioning?
