Muslim and Christian groups will hold vigils for a French priest murdered by extremists Saturday, as authorities charged a man in connection with the brutal church attack that rocked the nation.Police were still trying to piece together links to the two 19-year-olds who carried out the attack, Adel Kermiche and Abdel Malik Petitjean – both of whom were on intelligence services' radar and had tried to go to Syria.A source close to the enquiry said that a 17-year-old, who had tried to travel to Syria with Kermiche, was arrested in Geneva and sent back to France just a few days before the attack.France has just over 2,000 mosques, for one of Europe's largest Muslim populations of around five million.Since the assault, harrowing details have emerged about what happened in the church as well as a chilling warning from one of the attackers.
