Paris - The brother of French police officer Ahmed Merabet, who was gunned down in the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, said that Ahmed was killed in an act of barbarity by extremists.

In a moving tribute to Ahmed while speaking to a group of relatives gathered in Paris, Malek said the terrorists who ignored his brother's plea for mercy as he lay wounded on the street may have shared his Algerian roots, but had nothing else in common. "My brother was Muslim and he was killed by two terrorists. Islam is a religion of peace and love."

Malek reminded France that the country faced a battle against extremism, not against its Muslim citizens.

Ahmed's death was captured in a graphic video, as he was wounded by one of the two attackers and then shot in the head in cold blood.

There has been a rising tide of Islamophobia in France following the Paris killings, including a grenade attack on a mosque, explosion at a kebab shop beside a mosque, and gunfire targetting a Muslim family in a car, although there have been no casualties.
