Keeping Eye on Pakistani Movement

French anti-terrorist services have been paying particular attention to persons linked to the Pakistan-based Lashkar e Toiba movement ever since the Indian authorities voiced their conviction that it was behind bomb attacks that claimed 182 lives in Bombay on July 11.

Numerous members of Lashkar e Toiba live in the Paris region. The organization is known to have offered logistical support to Britain's Richard Reid who was arrested after trying to blow up an airliner on its way from Paris to Miami by igniting a bomb in his shoe. London is the leading center in Europe for Lashkar e Toiba but its members have also installed themselves in Paris (in the 19th arrondissement) and in the northern suburbs, where they recruit young North Africans. Recently, French security uncovered a network financing the movement through halal butchers in Paris.
