Terror suspects arrested in Paris ‘planned to blow up banks with “Mother of Satan” explosives

Terror suspects arrested in Paris allegedly planned to blow up banks with explosives favoured by jihadists dubbed Mother of Satan bombs.

French police investigating a suspected bomb factory near the capital believe three arrested men were preparing attacks and had made calls to Syria.

Ingredients to make an explosive called TATP, commonly used by Islamic State, were discovered in an empty flat in the Paris suburb of Villejuif on Wednesday, as well as gas canisters and electrical wiring.
