France probes ultra-right plot to attack religious venue
French judicial authorities are investigating five people after uncovering an ultra-right plot to attack a religious venue.
A judicial official said today that two people, one a minor, were arrested and placed under investigation in May for criminal terrorist association.
Three others were arrested in the probe that was opened in September in Grenoble, south-east France.
The anti-terrorism prosecutor's office took over the case.
The official said only one of the four was being held.
He was confirming portions of a BFMTV report saying that targets were Muslim or Jewish.
There was no link with a 2017 ultra-right plot against mosques and migrants.
