‘Planned Paris attack’

8 Sep, 2014

Four French journalists who allege that Nemmouche was their ISIS captor in Syria say he was planning a much bigger attack than the Jewish Museum shooting in Brussels, for which he is the prime suspect. French-language Liberation newspaper reports that the journalists say he planned the attack to take place on the Champs Elysees boulevard on July 14 to coincide with Bastille Day celebrations, and hoped to do much more damage than the March 2012 Toulouse attacks targeting Jews and soldiers that left seven dead and five injured.

[He planned] at least one attack in France, in the heart of Paris, which would be at least five times bigger than the attacks in Toulouse.
