French Police foiled a suspected terror attack and arrested two brothers of Egyptian origin, France's Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said on Friday.
"There were two young people of Egyptian origin who were preparing to commit an attack, with either explosives or ricin, this very powerful poison," the minister said on BFMTV.
The announcement came nearly a week after a terrorist knife attack in Paris in which a 29-year-old man was killed and five other injured.
In February, Collomb said that France foiled two terror attacks since the beginning of the year targeting a leading sports team and the armed forces.
According to official figures, 20 attacks were foiled in France in 2017.
