Five men who were arrested in France for planning an attack in the Paris area were directed from Daesh's (ISIS) heartland, a prosecutor said Friday.France has been under a state of emergency since January 2015 when Islamist extremists carried out the first of three large-scale attacks in the country that have left 238 people dead.The suspects were "in possession of or in search of weapons and financing" and were "looking for targets," Molins said.He said the coordinator had also been in contact with two other people who were arrested on June 14, during the Euro 2016 football tournament in France. The government has said 17 attacks were foiled since the beginning of the year in France, and seven in 2015 .
