French police arrested nine people believed to be part of an Islamic terror cell planning attacks in Paris. The suspected terrorists' targets were the Paris Metro (subway), an airport, and the headquarters of a police intelligence and counterterrorism agency. One of the arrested men had already been convicted for past terror attacks but was released from prison two years ago.

PARIS — Authorities fear that a suspected Islamic terror cell broken up in France was plotting attacks on the Paris subway, an airport and an intelligence agency's headquarters, newspapers said Tuesday.

Police arrested nine people Monday, including an Islamic militant previously convicted on terrorism charges and freed from prison two years ago, officials said.

Le Figaro and Le Parisien newspapers said the alleged cell's suspected targets included the Metro, a Paris airport and the Paris headquarters of the Directorate for Territorial Surveillance, or DST, a police intelligence and counterterrorism agency. The reports did not identify the airport.

France may have dodged a bullet with this one, I'm glad they found these people before they were able to carry out their plan. But it still remains in great danger of terror attacks from their large, disaffected Muslim population, as do other countries in Europe.

Why are they planning to attack France? I thought France was against the US and everything we do, so the "terrorist" attack them anyways?

Why?

Maybe it was a couple of those darn SAS terrorist...
