Frenchman ‘planned Euro 2016 attacks’, Ukraine’s SBU says

Ukraine’s SBU security agency has said that a Frenchman detained last month with a large cache of arms was planning mass attacks on the Euro 2016 football tournament, which begins on Friday.

The man, identified by French media as Gregoire M, 25, was arrested on the Ukrainian border with Poland.

SBU chief Vasyl Hrytsak said the man had been planning 15 attacks and was driven by ultra-nationalist views.
