Swiss Police Arrest 2 Tunisians Allegedly Linked to Marseille Terror Attack

GENEVA – Two Tunisian asylum-seekers have been detained near the Swiss-Italian border over suspected links to a recent terror attack that took place in France, Switzerland’s federal police announced on Tuesday.

The Federal Police Office (Fedpol) said that the arrest – which took place late on Monday in the Italian-speaking town of Chiasso (Canton of Ticino), located 50 kilometers (31 miles) to the north of Milan – had been carried out following a request by Italian authorities.

The two men, who remain in preventive custody, are suspected of having links to a 29-year-old Tunisian who on Oct. 1 stabbed two young women in front of a railway station in Marseille, France, while allegedly shouting “God is the greatest” in Arabic before being shot dead by French soldiers at the site.

The attacker’s brother was arrested on Saturday in the northern Italian city of Ferrara; investigators believe he may have been responsible for his sibling’s radicalization.
