PARIS (AP) — A group of people linked to France’s extreme far-right has been arrested on suspicion of planning an attack.

France’s Interior Minister, Gerard Collomb, did not specify the target in his tweet late Sunday, but French media said the 10 people detained over the weekend are suspected of targeting Muslims. Le Parisien newspaper said potential targets included radical imams, Islamist prison inmates or veiled women chosen at random.

There was a similar wave of arrests in October 2017, in which the suspected targets were believed to be migrants and mosques.
