PARIS (Reuters) – A Frenchman held in Pakistan for months on suspicion of training Islamist militants was detained for questioning by French police on his return home, an official at the Paris prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday.

Naamen Meziche was arrested on a bus along with three other French nationals in southwestern Pakistan in May 2012 on suspicion of training jihadi networks and preparing terrorist attacks, the official said.

Pakistan deported the three to France in April and they have been held since then on suspicion of conspiring to commit terrorist acts.
