Three Frenchmen arrested in Turkey after travelling to Syria were charged Saturday with planning terrorist acts, their lawyer said.
The men, who were the subject of a high-profile judicial bungle this week after their arrest in Turkey, were being charged by an anti-terrorist judge with "criminal association with the aim of planning terrorist acts", said lawyer Pierre Dunac told AFP.
The trio include the 29-year-old brother-in-law of Toulouse jihadist Mohamed Merah, who was shot dead by police after he murdered seven people, including three children, in a 2012 killing spree.
