Man held in Germany 'may have supplied Paris gunmen'

A 34-year-old man has been arrested in Stuttgart in Germany on suspicion of arms dealing, but prosecutors have declined to comment on reports he may have supplied guns to the Paris attackers.

A spokesman for the prosecutor in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg told Reuters: "I can confirm that a man is in custody on suspicion of arms trading."

German newspaper Bild reported the man was suspected of supplying the Paris attackers with two AK47s and two assault rifles which were sold online on November 7.

Hundreds of people are due to gather for a memorial service on Friday in honour of those killed in the Paris attacks two weeks ago.

The families of the 130 people killed in the French capital on November 13 have been invited to the ceremony at Les Invalides, where President François Hollande is expected to speak.

Republican guards will hold photos of each of the victims, who died in a series of attacks across the city, including at the Bataclan concert hall, outside the Stade de France and at restaurants and cafés.

President Hollande has called for citizens to drape their homes in the red, white and blue of the nation's flag for the ceremony.

Nearly 11,000 police are expected to be deployed for the event as the city remains on high alert.

The ringleader of the Paris attacks returned to the sites where they happened to see the carnage he had caused, French prosecutors said.

Abaaoud was later killed in a shoot-out when police raided a flat in Saint-Denis.

Jawad Bendaoud - also known as Jawad Ben Dow - told a French TV station last week that he was unaware of the identities of those staying.

Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a Belgian of Moroccan origin, Hasna Aitboulahcen, a woman police believe had links to Abaaoud, and a third unidentified person died in the raid.

ITV News obtained exclusive images showing holes blasted in the walls and crumbling brickwork following the raid during which more than 5,000 bullets were fired.

Fallon: Britain 'will not send in ground troops' to fight IS

Britain will not be sending ground troops in to help in the battle against the so-called Islamic State militant group in Syria, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon told ITV News at Ten.

After David Cameron revealed he would "make the case" for the UK to join coalition forces carrying out airstrikes over the country, Mr Fallon said Western troops would "categorically" not be sent in.

Speaking to News at Ten presenter Tom Bradby, he insisted that such a move would be more likely to help radicalise civilians and end up helping IS.
