‘Radicalized’ Frenchman took knives, gas on a Ryanair flight

A Frenchman described as “radicalized” was arrested in Morocco Wednesday after flying there with low-cost airline Ryanair with knives and a gas bottle in the hold, a local government official said.

The man had boarded the plane in the western French city of Nantes.

The 31-year-old man, who had been under house arrest in France for the past three months, was held upon his arrival in Fez, where authorities discovered the items in his luggage, which also included a black balaclava, the local government chief of the Loire-Atlantique département said.
