France arrested six terrorism suspects over the past few days, some of whom were French citizens. According to one French official, those suspects wanted to train at the terrorist camps in Pakistan. That official did not believe those men ever intended on conducting a terrorist attack inside France.
Of course, those men were probably assets of French intelligence. That’s why they didn’t want to attack France. They were probably “educated” to hate other countries (probably America). As to why France arrested them, perhaps another government, perhaps our government, found out about those terrorists and told France to arrest them.
As a side note, the French official believed there were 20 or so French citizens who were currently training in the terrorist camps inside Pakistan.
