French foil plot to attack the Côte d’Azur by a moderate Muslim newly returned from Syrian vacation

French counter-terrorism is convinced they foiled an “imminent” terrorist attack on the French Riviera, fomented by a man returning from Jihad in Syria, a source close to the case told AFP on Wednesday.

This certainty is born of the discovery on February 17 in an apartment in Mandelieu-La-Napoule, near Cannes, some 900 grams of explosive.
