Several people have been arrested after French police raid alleged Antifa headquarter that was used to make explosive devices. The raid took place in the Paris suburb of Bagnolet.

Police discovered dozens of molotov cocktails inside the Antifa building and firework mortars.

Inside the building were found graffiti stating “Welcome to our Paris HQ Antifa75”. Other messages that were found were radical, violent anti-police slogans.

In total, four people have been arrested and all are set to be charged with “participation in a group with a view to committing violence and making explosive devices”.

Among the four arrested was a 30 year old man and a 29 year old woman. The 30 year old man is known to the police from before for violence. They offered no resistence during their arrest.

This is not the first time that far-left extremists have been involved with explosives in Europe.
