Alleged international terrorist "Carlos the Jackal" awaiting trial in a French prison, has dropped his controversial French lawyer Jacques Verges, justice sources said Wednesday.

Verges told Reuters he had not visited Carlos, whose real name is Illich Ramirez Sanchez, for six months.

Venezuelan-born Carlos was detained in Sudan a year ago and transferred to prison in Paris.

Verges said he had not wished to assist Carlos Tuesday when an investigating magistrate ordered him held for up to another year while investigations continue into his alleged role in bomb attacks in France in the 1970s and 1980s.
