French police prevent possible terror attack

French authorities thwarted a possible terrorist attack using ricin or explosives, the country’s Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said on Friday. Speaking to French TV channel BFM, the minister explained two brothers of Egyptian origin have been arrested after police encountered extremist activity on social networks. The two men were "preparing to commit an attack with explosives or ricin," he stated.

Over the weekend, an attacker stabbed five people in Paris in the second arrondissement. He was shot by police who initially attempted to incapacitate the assailant with stun guns. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.
