A dry run for an attack on high value Christian buildings? Or a distraction for an attack on somewhere else?
According to the Daily Mail:
A radicalised French woman who wanted to run away and join ISIS is in custody in Paris today after abandoning a car packed with gas cylinders close to Notre Dame Cathedral. [...]
There were seven gas canisters inside - promoting fears of a terrorist attack on the ancient place of worship, which is high on a list of ISIS targets.
Despite being in the heart of tourist Paris, the suspect vehicle had been left untouched in the no-parking zone for a full two hours before the alarm was raised by someone living nearby.
Christian institutions are frequently attacked in France by Muslims, from the recent spectacular decapitation of a Catholic priest to the less reported but frequent desecration of churches, Church iconography and statuary with vandalism and grafitti.
