PARIS: French authorities charged Saturday a 33-year-old man — who had pledged allegiance to Daesh in a video — with planning a terror attack, judicial sources said.

The man — who was not known to the police — was arrested near the southern city of Nimes on Tuesday.

Bomb-making materials were found in his house but there was no indication of the targets he was planning to attack, they said.
