PARIS (Reuters) – French police found TATP explosives during a raid on a flat south of Paris, a police source said on Wednesday.
There was no one in the flat in the Paris suburb of Villejuif, and there were no arrests, the source said.
TATP is an easy-to-make but highly unstable explosive that has been used by militants in several Islamic State attacks in western Europe in recent years.
France’s counter-terrorism prosecutor will be in charge of the investigation, a judicial source said.
