December Terror Attack Thwarted in France, 7 Arrested

Seven men were arrested in France for planning a terror attack, possibly right after Thanksgiving weekend. Details surrounding the arrest and the terror conspiracy are still developing, but early reports say the attack was “imminent.”

According to the Mirror:

Terror suspects arrested in France last weekend were planning to launch attacks within days on Disneyland Paris and the famous Champs Elysees. The targets also included France’s counter-intelligence services hub in the Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret.

Another was the grandiose police crime-investigation headquarters at the Quai des Orfevres and the riverside high court building nearby, according to police sources. The attacks were to occur on December 1.


The Daily News has more details on the suspects:

Five of the suspects are French, one is Moroccan and the other Afghan, and they are between 29 and 37 years old, the security official said. Cazeneuve said six of them hadn’t been known to intelligence services.

The Moroccan had apparently been living in Portugal. Portuguese police said Monday that they had flagged a 26-year-old Moroccan residing in Aveiro in northern Portugal to other European authorities, warning that he was part of a terrorist group. In statement, the police said they had been watching him since 2015, and he was arrested by French police over the weekend.

One of the suspects worked for the Strasbourg city government on special events, Strasbourg metropolitan area president Robert Hermann said, according to his office.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving weekend, this breaking news is a sobering reminder to be grateful for the men and women who sacrifice their holiday weekend to keep us safe around the world.
