6 Arrested in Suspected Far-Right Plot to Attack Emmanuel Macron

Six people were arrested Tuesday in a far-right plot to attack French President Emmanuel Macron, according to a report from CNN. The suspects range in age from 22 to 62 and include five men and one woman, all of whom have been linked to the far right. The alleged attackers were spread over three regions of the country, and their plan remains unclear. “The investigation is looking into an imprecise and loosely formed plan for violent action against the President of the Republic,” an unidentified judicial source told the network. The arrests come just two days after Macron spoke of his rising concern over the far-right movement in France, helmed by former presidential candidate Marine Le Pen.
