Paris Terror Plot Foiled as Police Arrest Four People in Raid

  • Intelligence services suspect four posed imminent threat
  • Police finds ammunition but no weapons during searches

French authorities said they foiled a possible terror plot with the arrest of three men and a woman in the Paris area a day after a counter-terrorism raid in Brussels left one gunman dead and several police officers injured.

The arrests came Wednesday in the 18th arrondissement in the north of the French capital and in the suburb of Seine-Saint-Denis, according to a judicial spokeswoman who asked not to be identified in line with government policy. French officials suspect the four posed an imminent threat and at least one may have been planning an attack in Paris, she said. French television TF1 reported the information earlier.
