It has been 483 days since the last Muslim terrorist attack in France that caused more than 10 casualties. That attack was on 14 July 2016 when 86 people were killed and 202 wounded when a Muslim migrant mowed down Bastille Day revelers (including ten children) with a truck while shouting praises to Allah. Tunisian-born attacker, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, had moved to France after marrying a French-Tunisian cousin. More details on other attacks can be found here.
Nine suspects were arrested in a series of anti-terror operations carried out around France on Tuesday, with French media reporting a planned attack on the city of Nice had been thwarted.
The raids took place in the greater Paris region of Île-de-France and the Provence-Alpes-Côtes-d’Azur region of the south east.
According to reports some nine individuals aged between 18 and 60-years-old were arrested in the raids carried out by France’s specialist counter-terrorist police.
