Muslim extremists charged

Paris - Six people closely linked to Islamic extremist circles were charged and remanded in custody. The six, who were arrested during a police sweep against Muslim extremists in the eastern Lyon region, were accused of associating with groups preparing "a terrorist act." They were believed to form part of the same network as four men arrested on 31 August also in the Lyon region, days after an unexploded bomb was found on a railway line in the area used by the Paris-Lyon high-speed TGV train. But the charges against them relate to another incident. AFP
