"No specific target" has been identified for the attack foiled in France last week in which suspected jihadist Reda Kriket was arrested and an arsenal of weapons and explosives found at his home, the state prosecutor said Wednesday.
"At this stage of the investigation, while no specific target has been identified, nonetheless everything leads us to believe that the discovery of this cache (of weapons) has allowed us to prevent an action of extreme violence by a terrorist network," said prosecutor Francois Molins.
