  • Detained Islamists in France 'planning a kidnap'

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...-a-kidnap.html
    Seventeen people detained by French police in a crackdown on suspected Islamist networks might have been plotting a kidnap, the head of the police intelligence's unit has said.

    A French Muslim convert convicted in 2007 for planning an attack on an Australian nuclear plant is one of the suspected militants being held for questioning after a series of raids throughout France, a police source said on Saturday.

    Willy Brigitte was arrested on Friday at his home in Asnieres, a northwestern suburb of Paris. Authorities found no weapons but seized his computer and a mobile phone, the source told Reuters.
