France: Police Foil Islamist Plot to Bomb Swingers' Club

'Counter-terror police in France have foiled two Islamist attacks including one targeting homosexuals and a bomb plot aimed at a club for swingers, local media reports.

In raids conducted in the Seine-et-Marne region east of Paris at the weekend, police discovered "knives, a detonation system and jihadist propaganda" in the possession of two men who were charged on suspicion of planning to carry out an Islamic State-inspired attack.

The individuals, said to be friends in their early 20s who were previously unknown to security services, came to the attention of General Directorate for Internal Security (DGSI) intelligence officers a few weeks ago, a source close to the investigation said.'

More here but obviously not on the BBC.
