French police find explosives in terror search

PARIS - French anti-terror police have found bomb-making material and weapons while investigating suspected radical Islamists across France and believe they have uncovered a terror network, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said on Wednesday.
Molins said that a dozen suspects rounded up in a raid over the weekend would be held for a further 24 hours after the discovery of chemicals used to make explosives at a garage in the Paris suburbs belonging to one of them.
"We are clearly confronted with an extremely dangerous terror network," Molins said in a statement to the media. "It is essential to extend their stay in custody."
