French police on Tuesday arrested three men suspected of planning a terror attack in raids in the Paris area, Marseille and the central city of Clermont-Ferrand, legal sources said.




In Clermont-Ferrand, a bomb-disposal operation was called in to sweep the home of a 37-year-old suspect for explosives, a source said.


“The suspects had a plot that was sufficiently advanced for the police to decide to arrest them,” another source said.


The raids were ordered by anti-terrorism prosecutors in Paris, according to a judicial source.
