France releases suspects of threatening Sarkozy

FRENCH police have released without charge 11 people arrested last week over death threats sent to President Nicolas Sarkozy in letters stuffed with bullets, sources close to the probe said.

A tobacconist and veteran of the French Foreign Legion from the southern Montpellier region was allowed to walk free today, two days after his arrest along with that of 10 others.

…Investigators believe the letters demanding a halt to France’s expulsion of illegal immigrants and the release from jail of a leader of the armed leftist group Action Directe, came from left-wing extremists.
