Fransk politi har arrestert fire personer som var aktive i rekrutteringen til jihad i Syria.

French police have arrested four people allegedly involved in a jihadist recruiting network days after they held a 29-year-old Islamist extremist over the deadly shooting at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the new arrests were made by security forces carrying out an operation against «people who recruits jihadists» in the Paris region and the south of France.

«We will not give terrorists a chance,» Cazeneuve told Europe 1 radio, without providing further details.
