Second couple arrested after car with gas cylinders found in Paris: judicial source

by Reuters  |  published on September 8, 2016

French police investigating the discovery of a car packed with gas cylinders near Notre Dame cathedral in Paris have arrested a second couple and also established that the vehicle contained three jerry cans of diesel fuel, a judicial source said.

The discovery last Saturday night of the Peugeot 607 loaded with seven gas cylinders, six of them full, triggered an inquiry by counter-terrorism experts in a country where more than 200 people have died in attacks over the past year and a half.

Police sources said on Tuesday that no detonator device was found in the car, but the presence of diesel-filled cannisters added to concerns that there had been a plan to explode the vehicle.

The two arrests late on Wednesday takes to four the number held in custody by police, who are also trying to find the 19-year-old daughter of the car’s owner.

A first couple, aged 34 and 29, were arrested on a motorway on Tuesday in southern France.

    Congratulations on finding these likely explosives before they could be used to kill or destroy. Hopefully all nations will work to eradicate terrorism.

    More Muslim terrorists trying to kill as many Christians as they can. Islam is Satan’s army, The sooner the world wises up to that fact, the better.
