Tim Morris and his Australian federal police team were in Paris as part of their inquiries into alleged Islamist terrorist Willie Brigitte.

According to the source, the meeting with Bruguiere followed others with members of France's special services.

French national Brigitte was expelled from Australia last month and placed under judicial investigation here for alleged association with criminals in relation to a terrorist act.

Australian Prosecutor General Philip Ruddock announced Monday that an enquiry had been opened into the possibility that Brigitte had planned an attack on a nuclear reactor near Sydney.
