France arrests 5 in alleged terror plot

Police in southern France arrested five Chechen nationals Tuesday on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack inside the country, including one with a cache of explosives, as terror investigations in at least three other countries advanced with more arrests and the first charges expected to be filed over the Paris attacks.

Beziers Mayor Robert Menard confirmed the arrests Tuesday, but declined to give more information, saying the investigation was ongoing.
