PARIS: The older brother of a French jihadist who shot dead seven people in Toulouse in 2012, including three Jewish children, was given a 20-year jail sentence Thursday after being convicted of a terrorist conspiracy.

Abdelkader Merah was however cleared of having a direct hand in Mohamed Merah's killing of three soldiers and attack on a Jewish school, where he gunned down a rabbi, two of the rabbi's children, aged three and five, and an eight-year-old girl.
