May 22, 2020

French police in the Paris suburb of Bagnolet have arrested four people after discovering the alleged headquarters of the city’s extremist Antifa movement, where it is claimed explosives were being manufactured, according to Breitbart News.

The raid of the building took place on Sunday with officers discovering dozens of Molotov cocktails and other incendiary devices. The building, which has been occupied by members of the far-left extremist movement, featured various radical slogans including: “A cop, a bullet, social justice.” The building also featured graffiti stating, “Welcome to our Paris HQ Antifa75.”

Among the four arrested were a 30-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman with the former being previously known to police for acts of violence. The other two extremists were arrested the day before and were found to have explosives and Molotov cocktails.

All four are set to be charged with “participation in a group with a view to committing violence and making explosive devices” and will be kept in pre-trial detention.
