Suspects in the recent bombing of a kosher supermarket near Paris belonged to an “extremely dangerous” cell with links to Islamist rebels in Syria, a Paris public prosecutor has said.

Speaking on Thursday at a press conference in Paris, Francois Molins of the city’s prosecutor’s office said the suspects, who were arrested last week, belonged to “the most dangerous terrorist cell France has seen” in over 15 years, adding: “A terrorist attack on French soil has been prevented.”

Some of the suspects, according to Molins, had been involved in recruiting combatants for the fighting in Syria and all were French-born.

French anti-terror police officers have arrested 12 people suspected of belonging to what Molins called “this terrorist, Jihadist cell.” Five of them have been released from custody, while the remaining seven have been remanded for another 24 hours.
