France Foils Islamist Terror Plot in Marseille

(AFP) Police arrested two men in Marseille Tuesday on suspicion of planning an "imminent" attack, finding guns and explosives. The detained Frenchmen - Clement Baur, 23, and Mahiedine Merabet, 29 - were known to be "radicalized," said Interior Minister Matthias Fekl. A search of the suspects' apartment uncovered a loaded Uzi submachine gun, two loaded pistols, three kilos of TATP explosives and a homemade grenade, as well as the flag of ISIS, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said. France remains under a state of emergency after being the repeated target of jihadist attacks that have killed more than 230 people since January 2015.
