France "prevented terrorist acts this week" President Francois Hollande said on Wednesday, and a source close to the situation revealed that four people had been arrested in connection with the foiled attacks.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve was due to make a statement on the subject later, a government official said.

France is on high security alert this year after militant Islamists killed 17 people in January in attacks in and around Paris, and after an incident in June in which a suspected Islamist beheaded his boss and tried to blow up a US-owned industrial gas plant in the suburbs of Lyon.
