Handout photos released by French police in Paris early on January 8, 2015 of suspects Cherif Kouachi (L), aged 32, and his brother Said Kouachi (R), aged 34The fact that Said and Cherif Kouachi, the two men accused of carrying out the deadly attacks at French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, were brothers should come as no surprise, experts say. “The history of terrorism is replete with pairs of brothers and sisters operating together,” University of Massachusetts Lowell criminology professor John Horgan told AFP. After Mohammed Merah killed seven people at a Jewish school in Toulouse in March 2012, his brother was arrested as an accomplice. “We have plenty of examples across the terrorism spectrum, of multiple kinds of terrorism in Indonesia, Northern Ireland, Middle East,” said Horgan, who previously directed a center for terrorism and security studies at Pennsylvania State University.
