A warder closes the gate inside the men's building at the Fleury-Merogis prison, near Paris, in this May 14, 2014 file picture. The French investigation into last week's Paris shootings at satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket is exploring the possible role of Djamel Beghal, an Islamist suspected of first bringing the gunmen together and putting them on the path from impressionable youths to cold-blooded killers. While the 49-year-old Algerian has denied through his lawyer any involvement in the attacks, judicial and prison sources have described how two of the three gunmen nonetheless fell under his spell during a joint 2005 stretch in Fleury-Merogis and then pursued contacts with him after leaving prison.
