France: Seven Suspected Terrorists Formally Charged

Seven Frenchmen arrested as part of a weekend swoop on a suspected Islamist terror cell believed to have plotted attacks in the country were formally charged Thursday, a legal source said, according to AFP.

The report said that an alleged leading member of the group, Jeremy Bailly, was the first to be charged and detained on suspicion of having organized a grenade attack on a Jewish grocery store in the Paris suburb of Sarcelles last month.
