Prosthetic stomach – which have been used by female suicide bombers in Middle East – found at home of couple arrested on suspicion of condoning terrorism.
French anti-terror police have detained a woman found with a fake pregnant belly which they suspect she may have been planning to use to conceal explosives for a suicide attack.
The arrest of the 25-year-old Muslim convert and her 34-year-old partner came as France remains on high terror alert during the Christmas holiday season, a month and a half after attacks by Islamic extremists killed 130 in Paris.
The couple were arrested late last week in Montpellier for condoning terrorism. Investigators later found the fake belly when they searched their home in the southern town.
The fake belly had been covered in aluminium foil in a possible attempt to make its potential contents undetectable at security gates, a source close to the investigation said.
Female suicide bombers have hidden explosives in fake pregnancy bellies for attacks in the Middle East on many occasions, and the prosthetic stomachs have also been used to conceal drugs.
Police also found extremist Islamist propaganda on the couple’s computer in their home in Montpellier, and the woman had searched online for information on how to make bombs, a police source said.
