France Sounds Alarm Over 'Made-in-France' Jihadists


French officials wake up to the dangerous role of foreign nationals in the Syrian Civil War, as the trial of the Brussels Jewish museum shooter continues. The warning, from Prime Minister Manuel Valls, followed the weekend arrest of Medhi Nemmouche, a French jihadist suspected of carrying out last week's Brussels Jewish Museum killings after spending a year fighting in Syria.

Valls told BFMTV that the numbers of French citizens or residents who have taken part in the fighting in Syria or were planning to do so now exceeds 800, including some 30 who have died in the conflict.
