French anti-terrorism magistrates have locked up nine suspected Islamic terrorists for allegedly financing terrorism. Two others were released under judicial watch. The 11 were placed under investigation - a step short of being charged - overnight Friday to Saturday for alleged criminal association in relation to a terrorist enterprise, and financing of terrorism. The suspects were among 25 people, North African and French, rounded up in a vast sweep by counterterrorism agents in the Paris area and in the northern Oise region on Monday, the officials said. Monday's roundup was France's largest sweep of alleged terrorists in more than two years. The 14 others were released without charge.
