Les Oops: France allows 100 terror suspects to own firearms

Some 100 terror suspects legally own firearms in France, Interior Minister Gerard Collomb has said.

His announcement comes two weeks after a known gun enthusiast rammed a car filled with weapons and gas canisters into a police van on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

Jihadist Adam Djaziri was the only one killed but the attack raised questions over how the 31-year-old legally possessed firearms despite being flagged as a potential radical Islamist two years ago.
