Six arrested in France over suspected far-right plot to attack Emmanuel Macron

Six people linked to the far right were arrested in France on Tuesday as part of an investigation into a suspected plot to attack President Emmanuel Macron, officials told CNN Tuesday.

France's intelligence agency, the DGSI, said the six people were arrested in three separate regions: Isère, southeast of Lyon; Moselle, on the border with Germany and Luxembourg; and Ille-et-Vilaine, in the northwest near the city of Rennes.

The suspects include five men and a woman between the ages of 22 and 62, a judicial source close to the probe told CNN. All have connections to the far right, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

Yes, I'm sure they needed six dudes to coordinate throwing a shoe at him.
I'm not saying that they didn't plan to assassinate Macron. I'm saying that there's many ways to interpret "attack."

Why is it a bad thing to wait for concrete information before jumping to conclusions? It's probably a necessary thing.
