French forces nab third terror suspect following raid near Paris

France's Interior Minister Gerard Collomb announced Thursday that security forces had arrested a third terror suspect after capturing two others in a raid on a suspected explosives laboratory south of Paris the previous day. While searching the apartment in the city of Villejuif, less than two miles south of the capital, the security forces found materials for producing TATP, an explosive that Islamist suicide bombers have used to carry out a number of high-profile attacks in Western Europe. The suspects claim that they planned to use TATP to blow up a bank, according to the interior minister.
