Paris: French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said police had arrested a suspect in the Paris area on Thursday who was in “the advanced stages” of a plot to stage an attack in France.

While Cazeneuve said the raid in the Argenteuil neighbourhood northwest of Paris had led to a “major arrest”, he told reporters there was “no tangible evidence linking the plot to either the attacks in Paris or Brussels”.

Bomb disposal units were on the scene, he added.
