A French citizen has been detained at the Polish-Ukrainian border with an arsenal of weapons, media reported. The man may be involved in a plot to attack the Euro 2016 championships.
The man had in his vehicle 100 kg of explosives, fuses, three grenade launchers and several Kalashnikov assault rifles, M6 TV channel said. He was trying to smuggle the stockpile into France, the report said.
