The brother of a Franco-Algerian gunman who killed four Jews and three soldiers was sentenced to 20 years in jail on Thursday over a killing spree that heralded an era of Islamist-inspired attacks in which hundreds have since died in France.

A court in Paris ruled Abdelkader Merah guilty of terrorist offenses, but not direct complicity in the 2012 attacks, where his younger sibling, Mohamed Merah shot three Jewish children and one of their parents in Toulouse, and then three soldiers.
