France terror: 7 of the usual suspects arrested for planning attacks so far in August

Seven terror suspects have been arrested this month in France – and almost half of those had concrete plans to carry out attacks, France’s interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve has revealed.

All seven of the terrorists detained in August have now been jailed.

‘The number of individuals linked to terrorist networks arrested in the first six months of the year in France is equivalent to that of the full year 2015,’ Mr Cazeneuve said on Tuesday.
