French police intercept terrorists

The French police managed to prevent a terrorist attack the day before last week’s knife attack in Paris. Two men from an Egyptian background planned an attack with either explosives or the fast-working poison ricine. The men were arrested last Friday, according to a statement from the French police.

French police searched their houses and found instructions to create both bombs and poison. In one of the houses, police even found traces of explosives. Before the attack, the men communicated through the social app Telegram. Since the attacks in Paris in 2015, the French police can get access to information shared though the app. As of now, one of the men is a suspect to terrorrism. The other man was released according to the French media.
