Police in western France detained five people Thursday suspected of planning to carry out a terrorist attack, as the interior minister warned on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks that the threat of terrorism in France remains high. A police official said Thursday that investigators took the five suspects into custody in the western city of Rennes after receiving what they called "worrying" tips that they felt merited further investigation. The official was not authorized to be publicly named. Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie confirmed the arrests at a news conference but gave few details. Police said some of those in custody are of North African origin. They were being questioned by anti-terrorism investigators, though the police official said it was not yet clear whether the suspects presented a genuine threat.
