France: Terror Funding, Attack Weapons Came from Abroad – Lori Hinnant and Angela Charlton

French police said as many as six members of the terrorist cell that carried out the Paris attacks may still be at large. Several people are being sought in connection with the “substantial” financing of the three gunmen, said Christophe Crepin, a French police union official. The gunmen’s weapons stockpile came from abroad, and the size of it, plus the military sophistication of the attacks, indicated an organized terror network, he added.

“This cell did not include just those three. We think with all seriousness that they had accomplices, because of the weaponry, the logistics and the costs of it,” Crepin said. “These are heavy weapons. When I talk about things like a rocket launcher – it’s not like buying a baguette on the corner. It’s for targeted acts.”  (AP-ABC News)
