Girlfriend To Marry French Soldier

March 27, 2012 by staff 

Girlfriend To Marry French Soldier, The pregnant girlfriend of one of the French paratroopers murdered by Mohamed Merah is to be allowed to marry him posthumously, the family’s lawyer Gilbert Gollard said Friday.

“We have just obtained from the Elysee (President Nicolas Sarkozy’s office) the authorisation for Abel Chennouf’s girlfriend to marry posthumously,” Collard said.

Chennouf was one of two paratroopers shot dead in garrison town Montauban by self-confessed Al-Qaeda militant Merah during his killing spree in southwestern France before he was shot dead by police on Thursday.

His heavily pregnant girlfriend, Caroline Monet, attended a military commemoration ceremony in his memory on Thursday in a wheelchair. Sarkozy said in a speech there that the soldiers were victims of a “terrorist execution”.
