2 women arrested in connection to French terror plot

September 26, 2016

Police have detained two female teenagers suspected of planning a terror attack in France. The young women, ages 17 and 19, were arrested in the southern city of Nice, where 86 people were killed in a terror attack earlier this summer.

The suspects had reportedly been in touch with Rachid Kassim, a notorious French jihadist who is believed to be fighting with ISIS in the Middle East. Communicating through the Telegraph messaging app, Kassim encouraged the teenagers to target specific sites in France as an act of revenge for the death of Abu Mohammed al Adnani, a key spokesman for ISIS who was killed in Syria last month.

Kassim is also said to have directed four women in an attempted terror attack on Notre Dame Cathedral, which was foiled earlier this month. These plots seem to indicate that ISIS is placing unprecedented focus on recruiting women to carry out overseas attacks.
