France: Islamists arrested by French agents were making plan to attack targets in France.

"This network is suspected of drawing up plans for attacks in France against French and foreign interests," said the prosecutor's office in a statement. It did not elaborate. The prosecutor's office confirmed two people had been charged with association with criminals engaged in a terrorist enterprise. They were to be remanded in custody later on Friday. A third was to be questioned on Saturday by the anti-terrorism judges leading the investigation, Jean-Louis Bruguiere and Jean-Francois Richard. Intelligence services believe the trio were part of an "Iraq network" recruiting guerrillas to fight U.S.-led forces. Officials said the network had now been dismantled.
