French officials arrested five ISIS affiliates planning a Dec. 1 terrorist attack in the country, law enforcement officials said Friday.
The men were under the guidance of a coordinator in the Middle East and had obtained an “arsenal of weapons,” according to an NBC News report. They were arrested Sunday but officials only made the plot public on Friday using anti-terrorism rules to extend the length of time they could be held without charges.
Officials said the suspects had searched potential sites to attack but the police did not identify potential targets.
