PARIS — French police rounded up six suspected Islamist militants in raids in  Paris and its suburbs, police said on Tuesday, as France tightened security in  the wake of the death of Osama bin Laden.

Interior Minister Claude Gueant had said Monday that France had no concrete  evidence of a specific attack being planned, but said security forces were in a  heightened state of vigilance over the Jihadist threat.

The arrests were made on Monday in Paris and two of its largely-immigrant  suburbs: Stains, where searches continued, and Garges-les-Gonesse, officials  close to the inquiry told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The raids were carried out by the DCRI police intelligence service as part of  an probe into an Islamist network alleged to have recruited militants in France  and sent them to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

French officials told AFP recently that investigators suspect some of these  fighters may have recently returned from the battlefield to France.

“On the day after the death of Osama bin Laden I ordered reinforced  vigilance,” Gueant told reporters on Monday at a joint news conference in Paris  with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Paris residents have noticed a larger than normal security presence around  tourist attractions and transport hubs in recent days, but Gueant said he had  not ordered an increase in the terror alert level.

France’s security status has been at the second highest level, “Red” or  “probable threat”, since 2005, when Islamist suicide bombers struck London and  triggered fears of more attacks on neighbouring European capitals.

In 2008, officials reinforced security measures but stopped short of moving  to the highest threat level, “scarlet” or “specific threat”, which would trigger  draconian security measures and the closure of potential targets.

French forces are fighting in Afghanistan as part of the NATO-led coalition  battling Taliban guerrillas and Bin Laden’s al-Qaida network has repeatedly  threatened to carry out attacks against French citizens and interests.

al-Qaida’s North African offshoot, al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, has  kidnapped several French citizens in recent years, some of whom have been  ransomed and some killed. Four nuclear workers are still being held.

On April 28 bombers attacked a popular tourist cafe in the Moroccan city of  Marrakesh, killing 17 people including eight French tourists.

One thought on “ANOTHER COINCIDENCE…

  1. ten years after 9/11 and some of us are finally waking up to the threat of this cult of death. although one cannot say this in the workplace or on the news outloud. we are surely in the last days; the moon god of islamabama and the almighty sovereign of the universe whom the Jews and Christians call Jehovah- the showdown is seemingly soon.
    thanks for the excellent website.
