Terrorist threat – the Frenchman arrested for “planning violence” appears before an anti-terrorist judge

The 42 year old Frenchman who was arrested in Lille on Wednesday on suspicion of planning “violence” appeared before an anti-terrorist judge on Sunday to start his trial, a judicial source told AFP and BFMTV.

The suspect, known to have been radicalised, is a member of the biker gang Kamikaze Riders, which brothers Akim and Khalid Saouti also belonged too. The Saouti brothers were charged with being part of a terrorist group on Wednesday.

Several guns, ammunition, bullet proof vests and police uniforms were found in houses in Anderlecht.
