A man was arrested, charged and convicted of making terroristic threats after he threatened to kill students at a Jewish school in France, according to court proceedings.
French Police said that a local man, 20, was sentenced to one year in prison on Monday, after making telephone death threats to the Jewish school in Toulouse, France, where a teacher and three students were killed in 2012.
In March of 2012, Mohammed Merah entered the Ozar Hatorah school after arriving on a motorcycle and shot a teacher, 30, and his two children, ages 3 and 6. He also killed a 10-year-old, who was the daughter of the school principal. Merah died in a clash with the police.
Lucien Abdelrhafor, a French citizen of Moroccan origin, who claimed to be a cousin of Merah, was arrested over the weekend for making a threatening phone call to the French Jewish school, which has changed its name from Ozar Hatorah of Or Torah.
According to SPCJ, the security service of the French Jewish community, the man called the school on September 16 and told a secretary: "I am the cousin of Mohammed Merah and tonight I'm going to kill you."
Police said that the man is not related to Merah.
