Seven suspected Islamists arrested in Paris: police
French security forces arrested seven suspected Islamists during a series of raids in the Paris region on Tuesday, police sources said.
The arrests were made in the capital and two towns to the north: Stains, where house-to-house searches were continuing, and in Garges-les-Gonesse, they said, without stating the reason for the operation.
The police action was directed by the internal intelligence service.
