Police in France arrested 19 suspected Islamic militants on Friday morning, including some who may be tangentially connected to the man who shot seven people in Toulouse this month. While none of the suspects have been directly connected to the recent attacks, some were members of a banned Salafist group that Mohamed Merah may have been linked to. The raids took place in the early morning hours in the cities of Toulouse, Nantes, Le Mans, and in the Paris, where police say they also seized automatic weapons. No formal charges have been filed yet, but President Nicolas Sarkozy says there could be more raids and the suspects will likely be expelled from France.

How the planned Congressional address will effect the upcoming election in Israel is unclear.
