The danger of more terror attacks in Nice has been underlined by the arrest of two young women in mid-September. The 19- and 17 year-old were in the later stages of planning an attack, Le Parisien said on Sunday.
The two women were in contact with Rashid Kassim, currently in Syria, the newspaper said. Although the three individuals were using the encrypted Telegram messaging platform, French intelligent services were able to identify them. One unidentified operative of the DGSI service told Le Parisien that the degree of radicalisation of the two young women was so advanced that an atrocity could be considered very likely.
