French police on Tuesday arrested two men on suspicion of complicity with an Islamist gunman who shot seven people dead in the city of Toulouse a year ago, in a spree that shocked the country.

An anti-terror unit arrested the pair in Toulouse, police officials said, without providing details on their identity.

Two men aged 19 and 22 were arrested a month earlier on suspicion of assisting Mohamed Merah, who was shot dead in a police siege after killing a rabbi, three Jewish children and three paratroopers.

They were released without charge, as were three other people arrested before them.

French police doubt that Merah could have acted alone, but the only person charged with helping him so far is his brother Abdelkader.
