STRASBOURG - French police shot dead a suspect during an anti-terrorism raid in the northeastern city of Strasbourg on Saturday that was part of an investigation into a grenade attack last month on a Jewish market, judicial and security sources said.
Elite police units carried out simultaneous operations in the Paris region, in Strasbourg and the Mediterranean cities of Nice and Cannes in the early hours of Saturday, the sources told Reuters. One man was arrested in the Paris region.
The raids were connected to a Sept. 19 incident in the Paris suburb of Sarcelles in which two men threw a grenade into a Jewish kosher supermarket, wounding one and causing minor damage, security sources said.
