France charges 10 ultra-right suspects over plot to attack Muslims

PARIS (AFP) - French judges placed nine men and one woman under formal investigation on suspicion of planning attacks against Muslims, a judicial source said on Thursday (June 28).

Aged 32 to 69, they are suspected of plotting attacks against several targets, including Imams. They include a 65-year old ex-policeman, thought to be the group’s leader, and his wife.

Thirty-six weapons were found when they were arrested at the weekend at various locations in France, the prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday.
