French president may have been target of ‘violent action’ plot, anti-terror police say

The six, who were not identified, were picked up by anti-terrorism units in the eastern French regions of Moselle and Isère and the north-west region of Ille-et-Vilaine, officials added.

A source close to the investigation said the arrests came after reports of a possible plot involving “violent action” aimed at the president. Prosecutors have launched an investigation into a “criminal terrorist association”, a judicial source said.

... In July 2017, a 23-year-old far-right extremist was charged with plotting to assassinate Marcon at France’s Bastille Day military parade, which the French leader attended with the US president, Donald Trump.
