French 'attack plot' leads to three arrests

Three people have been arrested in France on suspicion of plotting a terrorism attack, police sources say.

French media say a counter-terrorism operation is under way at the home of one of the suspects, in the central city of Clermont-Ferrand.

The other two arrests were reportedly in Marseille and in the Paris region.

France is on high alert after a series of deadly attacks in recent years by militants claiming to be from the Islamic State group.
