SUBSEQUENT to the somewhat bizarre discovery of a car with no number plates with hazard lights flashing and full of gas cylinders and diesel but no detonators parked outside Notre Dame Cathedral, police arrested a number of people including the owner of the car.

Based on information supplied, possibly by the owner of the car, police raided a property in Boussy-Saint-Antoine, south-east of Paris on September 8 to arrest three women who they described as being “radicalised” and likely to be preparing an attack within France.

One of the women, said to be the daughter of the owner of the car, stabbed one of the arresting officers with a knife and was shot and wounded.


French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the three women arrested aged 39, 23 and 19 “had been radicalised, were fanatics and were in all likelihood preparing an imminent, violent act”.


  1. Strange that if I were to stop my car near Notre Dame for a minute the police would be there to tell me to move. Yet this vehicle without number plates and indicators flashing was not noticed for two days in a location swarming with police and armed military patrols during a state of emergency. So much for Hollande promising security for the French!
