Paris (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 8th May, 2021 ) :Three members of a neo-Nazi group arrested in eastern France on suspicion of planning an attack on a masonic lodge have been charged, a judicial source said Saturday.
The suspects, two men aged 29 and 56 and a 53-year-old woman, were indicted on Friday evening by a Paris anti-terrorist judge on suspicion of forming a "terrorist criminal association", the source added.
Three others also arrested on Tuesday -- two men and a woman -- have since been released.
Belonging to a group calling itself "Honour and Nation", the suspects are believed to have planned a violent attack, although they were not on the verge of carrying it out, a source familiar with the investigation said.
They were arrested based on their communications, research into explosives and scouting of the potential target.
The probe is just the latest into France's far-right scene.
