French police detain 6 terror suspects

PARIS  — Police have detained six people in the Paris region suspected of plotting terrorist attacks in France.

The Paris prosecutor’s office said today  that the six are being questioned by anti-terrorist investigators, and are believed to have been part of a radical Islamic terrorist cell.

Prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre says the suspects were detained Monday and remained in custody today, she said. They can be held up to four days under France’s anti-terrorism laws.

France has been on higher alert for potential attacks since French troops entered Mali earlier this year, to push out al-Qaida-linked extremists who had seized much of the West African country and have threatened France and Europe.
