The Sun has a photo of three men who they say the police are hunting, in connection with the massacre of Jewish children and three French soldiers of Caribbean and North African heritage.
These three soldiers were cashiered from the 17th Parachute Engineer Regiment in 2008, when this picture came to light.
The soldiers who have been murdered are also from the 17th Parachute Engineer Regiment.
The BBC now reports:
Three soldiers expelled from the army in 2008 for neo-Nazi activities have now been cleared of any involvement in the shootings. The three were members of the same parachute regiment in Montauban as the soldiers killed in the attacks on 11 and 15 March.
Earlier, Mr Gueant said inquiries had taken place “regarding soldiers who were kicked out of the army and who might want to seek revenge”
