Five arrested after ‘homemade bomb’ found in Paris

The Paris prosecutor has opened an anti-terror investigation after the discovery at the weekend of a homemade bomb at a building in Paris and five people have been arrested, sources close to the case said Monday.

Police discovered two cylinders of gas in the hall of a building in the city’s 16th arrondissement and two others on the sidewalk. They also found a mobile phone linked to the cylinders, which appeared to be “a device to ignite” the explosive, the sources said.
