Two French Teen Girls Arrested for Terror Plot; Planned to Conduct Paris Concert Terror Attack

Two teenage girls have been arrested in France for plotting to carry out a terror attack against a concert venue in Paris, the Clarion Project website reports today (March 13, 2016).

The girls -- aged 15 and 17 -- were arrested after discussing plans for the attack over Facebook messenger.

The attack they discussed was similar to those that hit the French capital in November 2015 in which militants loyal to the Islamic State killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more. Of those killed, 90 lost their lives at the Bataclan theatre during a concert.

The girls were arrested on March 9 and formally charged two days later with "criminal conspiracy in connection with a terrorist undertaking."
