A car with several gas cylinders was found near the Parisian cathedral Notre Dame on Saturday night, reported world news agencies, citing the police in the French capital. The owner of the car is on the intelligence list of suspected of religious radicalization.
The emergency lights of the car had been on. In the car, there were seven gas cylinders, one of them empty. There was no detonator in the vehicle, but documents were found with inscriptions in Arabic. According to the French television BFM, the car may have been used to prepare an attack. In connection with the case were arrested a man and a woman, who are currently questioned.
The signal for the car was made by an employee of a bar who noticed the vehicle and the gas cylinders. The investigation is led by the special counter-terrorism division of the French prosecution.
