4 arrested in terror plot targeting military sites in France

Four people were arrested in France this week in connection with a plot to attack military sites, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on late Wednesday, though few details were immediately known.

Cazeneuve said the suspects, who were arrested on Monday, are between the ages of 16 and 23. The group's leader had allegedly been in contact with known jihadists who are currently in prison, the minister added, according to the Reuters news agency.

Earlier, French President François Hollande said that France had thwarted new terrorist acts, but declined to detail.
