Muslims planned December attack on Paris

French police sources said on Thursday that several suspects arrested last week in anti-terror raids were planning to launch attacks in and around the nation’s capital on December 1.

Seven suspects were arrested last weekend in the eastern French cities of Strasbourg and Marseille following an eight-month investigation, although two were later released. The remaining five suspects’ custody was extended under legislation covering investigations into imminent terror attacks.

One of the suspects told investigators that attacks were planned, and named the police crime-investigation headquarters at the Quai des Orfevres and France’s DGSI domestic security department as targets.
