Two French girls have been handed preliminary terrorism charges over an alleged plot to attack a Parisian concert hall. 

The girls were arrested on Wednesday by counterterrorism agents as part of an investigation for criminal conspiracy in connection with a terrorist enterprise. 

The Paris prosecutor’s office said that one of the girls, aged 15, will remain in custody, while her 17-year-old companion will be released under judicial supervision. 

Prosecutors said that the girls’ project appears to have been at an early stage and no weapons or explosives were found in connection to it. 

France remains in a state of emergency following the terror attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015.
