Fiji Sun - - World News -

Paris: French au­thor­i­ties have said that three women ar­rested for plan­ning an at­tack in Paris were be­ing di­rected by the Is­lamic State of Iraq and the Le­vant.

Anti-ter­ror­ism prose­cu­tor Fran­cois Molins said on Fri­day that the three sus­pects were de­ter­mined to carry out ISIS’s “deadly ide­ol­ogy”, and had been given di­rec­tion by ISIS mem­bers in Syria. The women, aged 39, 23 and 19, were ar­rested on Thurs­day night as part of a probe into a car, loaded with six gas cylin­ders and three cans of diesel, that was found last Sun­day parked near the renowned Notre Dame cathe­dral.
