French police arrested two men on suspicion that they helped Mohammed Merah in two killing sprees in the Toulouse area last year, including at a Jewish school.

The two were arrested separately on Tuesday in Toulouse, according to Le Monde.

Merah, a 23-year-old radical Muslim, killed a rabbi and three children in an attack on the Ozar Hatorah Jewish school, now Ohr Hatorah, on March 19, 2012. The slayings came a few days after Merah gunned down three French soldiers in two drive-by shootings from a scooter near Toulouse. He was shot dead on March 22, 2012 during a standoff with police.
