Two men close to the ultra-right were indicted for “terrorist criminal conspiracy” and placed in pre-trial detention, as part of the investigation of a bombing project against French President Emmanuel Macron.
Franceinfo, a French domestic rolling news channel, reported this on Saturday.
The two suspects, aged 30 and 45 respectively, were believed to have planned action against President Macron during the commemoration of the centenary of the end of the First World War, in November 2018, said Franceinfo quoting a Parisian judicial source.
The two were arrested Monday in the Moselle, northeastern France.
They had been presented to an examining magistrate for their indictment.
The national anti-terrorism prosecutor’s office had requested their detention on remand.
