3 charged in mysterious, failed attack on Paris building
Three men have been handed preliminary terror-linked charges in the failed attack a week ago on a residential building in an upscale Paris neighborhood with gas canisters that failed to ignite, a judicial official said Saturday.

 

The suspects were placed under formal investigation late Friday in the mysterious attack attempt in the building in western Paris' chic 16th arrondissement, the official said. No motive for the attack has been uncovered, and the three have refused to answer questions. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak on the record about an ongoing investigation.
