Breaking news from Europe Thursday night: The deadly bombings in Brussels, Belgium put Europe on high alert this week and accelerated the investigation of other potential terror plots in major cities like London and Paris. One of those terror sweeps is said to have led French police to arrest a man who was in the “advanced stages” of planning yet another terrorist attack on France, although France’s interior minister is not yet revealing any details.

Twin terror raids in France and Belgium Thursday resulted in multiple arrests, including one Frenchman who was described as being in the “advanced stages” of a plot to attack the country.
However, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the man arrested in Argenteuil, on the northern outskirts of Paris, was not linked “at this stage” to recent attacks in Paris and Brussels.
He said the person was implicated at a “high level” in the alleged plot but provided no details.
