20 NABBED IN FRENCH ANTI-TERROR OPERATION
At least 20 people have been arrested in the French suburb of Argenteuil as part of a large-scale anti-terrorism operation on Thursday 07/21/2016 pre dawn operation.
The anti-terror operation began at 2.30 pm local time (1.30pm GMT), with police searching at least two different addresses in Argenteuil, where members of the RAID unit were deployed in support. The anti-terrorist section of the Paris prosecutor’s office has opened investigation.
The searches come after police were tipped off about a “violent action plan”, a police source told the AFP news agency. “These interventions have, for the moment, no connection with the attack in Nice,” a ministerial source is quoted as saying by the Parisian newspaper.
The arrests are, probably coordinated with almost simultaneous operation in Brazil related to a possible attack on French sportsmen in the Olympics scheduled to the next month ,
