6 held over suspected plot to attack Emmanuel Macron
Paris [France], Nov 7 : French police on Tuesday arrested six people over a suspected plot to launch an assault on President Emmanuel Macron, officials said.
A judicial source told CNN that the six suspects arrested -- five men and a woman, were aged between 22 and 62. The French Interior Ministry said that all of them were linked to the far-right.
"The investigation is looking into an imprecise and loosely formed plan for violent action against the President of the Republic," the source said.
In July last year, a 23-year-old man was charged for plotting an attack on Macron at Bastille Day's parade.
