French arrests


French security agents have arrested six people on suspicion of plotting to attack French President Emmanuel Macron. Prosecutor­s have opened a preliminar­y investigat­ion of alleged criminal terrorist associatio­n after intelligen­ce agents detained the six suspects in three scattered regions: one in the Alps, another in Brittany and four near the Belgian border in Moselle. The plan to target the French President appeared to be vague and unfinished, but violent, a judicial official said. Authoritie­s said the six were between the ages of 22 and 62 and included one woman.
