French Islamist suspects 'meant to kidnap Jewish judge' BBC (hat tip David W)
Suspected Islamist militants arrested in France were plotting to kidnap a Jewish judge, sources close to the investigation told French media. Of the 19 people arrested across the country on Friday, 16 remain in custody and the first court hearings are due to be held shortly.
France expelled two foreign-born radical Islamists on Monday.
An Islamist gunman, Mohamed Merah, killed seven people in south-western France last month before being shot. A lawyer for his Algerian father says she has evidence his son pleaded his innocence in talks with police besieging his flat in Toulouse.
A French police source suggested the allegation did not square with the facts of the siege.
Right to appeal
Sources close to the investigation told French media that some of the suspects seized in Friday's dawn raids had been planning to kidnap Jewish magistrate Albert Levy in the eastern city of Lyon.
Mr Levy and his family are now under police protection.
The head of France's Central Directorate for Domestic Intelligence (DCRI), Bernard Squarcini, said earlier that the suspects were French nationals involved in "collective war-like training, linked to a violent, religious indoctrination".
Some belonged to a banned extremist group, Forsane Alizza, and had been involved in paintball gun games, he added.
Police also seized a number of weapons including four Kalashnikov rifles, eight other rifles and "seven or eight" handguns, along with tear gas canisters and a taser, Mr Squarcini said.
French anti-terrorism legislation allows for suspects to be held for four days, and some of the suspects may be charged on Tuesday.
On Monday, the French interior ministry announced two men had been expelled on grounds of state security and public safety, and had returned to their countries of origin.
One of these, Malian imam Almany Baradji, had reportedly preached anti-Semitism and advocated the full face veil for women – which is illegal in France.
