Paris police on Friday detained eight terror suspects who were expelled by Egypt, judicial officials said. Egyptian authorities expelled the eight Frenchmen along with two Belgians Thursday on a charter flight for Brussels, an official at Cairo's international airport said. The men, along with an American, another French citizen and an unknown number of Egyptians and Arabs from other countries, were arrested late last month by Egyptian authorities for allegedly belonging to an Islamist terror cell plotting attacks. The ninth French citizen and the American remain in Egyptian custody. The French suspects were brought from Brussels to Paris by car. Upon their arrival early Friday morning, the Paris police's anti-terrorist division immediately took the men into custody for questioning. Under French law, they can be held without charges for up to four days.
