19th Arrondisement Network
The 19th Arrondissement Network was a group of militant French Muslims who were tried and convicted of recruiting approximately a dozen Frenchmen to fight for insurgent forces in the Iraq War. The group is referred to by this name since a large portion of its members were from this neighborhood of Paris.
