A man suspected of killing two French police officers at their home in a suburb of Paris had a past terrorism conviction for recruiting jihadist fighters in Pakistan, officials said.
Larossi Abbala, 25, from the Paris suburb of Mantes-la-Jolie, was convicted in 2013 to three years in prison, including six months suspended for association with a terrorist enterprise.
Abbala is suspected of stabbing a policeman outside his house in Magnanville on Monday night, before killing his partner. He was killed in a police raid on the house.
