Terror suspects planned ATTACKS on Parisian landmarks including Champs Elysees
Police sources said that among the targets were France's counter-intelligence services hub in the Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret, the grandiose police crime-investigation headquarters at the Quai des Orfevres, and the riverside high court building nearby.
Also targeted by the would-be attackers were the Disneyland Paris theme park 20 miles east of the city and the Champs Elysees shopping strip.
The targets of the five men being held and the date of the planned assault were establised thanks to information found on a smartphone, the police sources said.
