A suspected Isis terror plot has been foiled in France with the arrest of seven suspected jihadis in Strasbourg and Marseille, authorities have said.

Bernard Cazeneuve, France’s interior minister, said they were arrested in a series of coordinated raids on Saturday night and into the early hours of Sunday morning.

He told a news conference that DGSI counter-terror officers had been monitoring the cell for more than eight months, after uncovering links to a network arrested in June for planning attacks during the Euro 2016 football tournament.

“The work of the DGSI allowed us to thwart a terrorist act envisaged for a long time on our soil,” Mr Cazeneuve said. “A new attack has been foiled.”
