Five terror suspects were acting under Islamic State direction, Paris prosecutors say.

Guided by the Islamic State

Five men arrested in two French cities over the weekend were being directed by the Islamic State and were allegedly planning a terror attack in France as early as next week, Francois Molins, the Paris prosecutor, said Friday.

Four of the suspects were arrested in Strasbourg and one in Marseille.

The five were among seven people rounded up over the weekend.


The suspects were allegedly been instructed to "acquire arms," Molins told reporters, according to France24.

He said the suspects were planning a terrorist attack for Dec. 1, although authorities had not yet determined the exact target.

Potential targets reportedly included the Disneyland Paris amusement park and the famed Champs-Elysées boulevard as well.

Authorities had not yet determined the exact target, but sources report main attractions.
