23-year-old Mohammad Merah was a French citizen of Algerian descent. He was apprehended in Afghanistan by Afghan security forces and turned over to the French Army - NOT the US Army as has been mistakenly reported. Because of his French citizenship the French Army repatriated him to France; he was not detained by their law enforcement or processed through their judicial system. According to my sources, Merah was amongst those 450+ prisoners in the Taliban mass escape from the prison in Kandahar in April of 2011.
