France, with its huge Muslim population, has become Ground Zero in the new wave of the Islam terror war. And a very ugly Muslim terror attack may have just been averted.
Gas tanks and documents in Arabic were found in an unmarked car next to Notre Dame cathedral sparking fresh terror fears and at least two arrests, according to French reports on Wednesday.
An anti-terror investigation has been launched following the discovery of the suspicious vehicle containing up to seven cylinders on Sunday yards from the cathedral – one of Paris’s most visited landmarks where thousands of tourists congregate every day.
Documents in Arabic were reportedly found inside and were “in the process of being translated”.
Reports said that a couple, a man aged 34 and a woman aged 29, were arrested in connection with the case on Tuesday night on a motorway lay-by near Orange, southern France. They were on their way to Spain.
Both are reportedly known to intelligence services as being “favourable to the ideas of Isil”.
