Five French terror plots ‘foiled since last summer’

While jihadists returning from Syria accounted for four of the foiled plots, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve told a cabinet meeting that there were also some instances of homegrown terrorism.

“Since the summer of 2013, the DGSI (French intelligence services) has foiled five terrorism attack projects in the country, involving individuals who had returned to France or who had never left the country,” Cazeneuve said according to the minutes from Wednesday’s meeting.
