3 Chechens Arrested in France

Hopefully this will be precursor to Europeans finally taking the Chechen jihad seriously. But I doubt it:

Three Chechens suspected of Islamist terrorist activity were arrested in France this week in a joint French-Spanish operation, Spain's Interior Ministry said Friday....

The suspects were identified as Ali Dokaev, arrested in Noyon, 100 kilometers (62 miles) northeast of Paris; Elsy Issakov, arrested in Les Lilas on the east side of Paris; and Mourad Idrissov, arrested in Genevieve des Bois, on the south side of Paris, the ministry said.

These three are connected to another Chechen arrested last month in Spain who had al Qaeda connections.
