A 16-year-old minor, who made comments on a Telegram channel indicating that he was seeking to obtain the elements necessary to make an explosive belt in order to die as a martyr in the name of the Islamic Caliphate, was arrested at his parental home the next day in Marignier, in Haute-Savoie, this Monday April 22, according to our information.

Of French nationality, he is being monitored for radicalization. The search led to the discovery of his cell phone, handwritten documents including a declaration of allegiance to the Islamic State and drawings of the flags of Daesh, Hamas and Hezbollah, a police source told Valeurs Acteurs.
