France Arrests 15-Year-Old Boy for Planning Paris Attack
A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in Paris suspected of preparing imminent "violent action", two judicial sources said, the second alleged plot with links to Daesh terrorist group discovered in France this week.
Last Sunday, a car loaded with gas cylinders was found near Notre Dame cathedral and jerry cans of diesel, leading to the discovery of a plot to attack a Paris railway station under the direction of Daesh (ISIL). Seven people, including four women, were arrested.

The boy had been under house arrest since France declared a state emergency after November 13 attacks in Paris in which Daesh terrorists killed 130 people, two sources said on condition of anonymity. They did not say why he was under house arrest.

His arrest on Saturday came as he was planning an attack in a public place in the French capital, Reuters reported.
