Toulouse serial killer's Brother is arrested... as 300 officers continue to lay siege around 'Islamic warrior's' flat

The older brother of the self-confessed Al Qaeda terrorist thought to have murdered seven people across south west France over the past two weeks has been arrested.

Abdelkader Mera, 27, was detained this afternoon some 10 hours after a 3am raid when 300 armed police dramatically swooped on his 24-year-old brother Mohammed's Toulouse home.

Three officers were injured this morning in an ensuing firefight - and Mohammed, who French President Nicolas Sarkozy said was going to kill another soldier today, is now cornered and under siege.
