French authorities arrested a Tunisian man early Thursday on his arrival at Paris' main airport after being expelled from Ethiopia on alleged terrorist links, police and judicial officials said. The man, in his 20s, is suspected of having trained with a militant Islamic network in Ethiopia, judicial officials said on condition on anonymity because the case was ongoing. "A person of Tunisian nationality was arrested this morning at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport," national police spokesman Christophe Gay told The Associated Press. Gay declined to comment further, other than to say an investigation was under way.
