(CBS/AP) PARIS - French prosecutors have filed preliminary charges against the brother of a gunman who killed Jewish schoolchildren and paratroopers in attacks that stunned the country.
Abdelkader Merah, 30, has been charged with being an accomplice to murder, criminal association with a view to committing terrorist acts, and theft, reports CBS News' Elaine Cobbe.
He was moved from Toulouse to the Paris region earlier today. Meanwhile, his partner (who was detained with Abdelkader) was released early this morning.
Four anti-terrorism magistrates have been placed in charge of the case, as the investigation continues, Cobbe writes.
Merah's younger brother Mohamed was shot dead by police after claiming responsibility for killing three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers earlier this month.
