The ‘ticking time bomb’ Islamist who killed an elderly priest may have recruited his accomplice via Facebook – despite being on a terror watch list.
Adel Kermiche, 19, was revealed by relations to have had several accounts on the social networking site with which he spread jihadi propaganda from his home near Rouen.
His accomplice, named for the first time, as Abdel Malik P, lived more than six hours drive away in Aix-Les Bains, in Alpine France.
The pair were both killed by police marksmen when they burst out of the church where they had murdered the priest. They were picked off despite trying to use their hostages as human shields. Malik was hit in the face and it took a day to identify him.
Una prueba más de la laxitud con que trata Facebook las cuentas que justifican o son partidarias del jihadismo.
Es llamativo también que Adel Kelmacher estuviera monitorizado y viviendo en casa de sus padres y sin embargo, lograra hasta contactar con internet con un colega para cometer un atentado.
