(AP) — French authorities are questioning a fifth person in an anti-terrorism investigation seeking to identify potential accomplices and motives after a police official was fatally stabbed at a police station outside Paris.

French police killed the 37-year-old Tunisian attacker shortly after the Friday slaying of an unarmed administrative employee at the entrance of her police station in the town of Rambouillet.

Police have detained a cousin of the attacker and are also questioning the attacker’s father, another cousin and a couple who provided him with an address for mail. This week, France’s interior minister plans to present a new counterterrorism and intelligence bill.
