Rizet emphasized that the profiles of those captured posed an alarming danger.
France, the General Directorate of Homeland Security (DGSI) announced on Tuesday that 9 persons, around the age of 30, were detained in Paris, Toulouse and Dorogne districts on suspicion of preparing for the action, and 7 of them were sent to court.
In the search made in the vehicles and homes of two of the detainees, weapons and ammunition types used in terrorist acts were found.
