PARIS (AP) - France's interior minister says a Frenchman has been arrested in the "advanced stages" of a plot to attack the country.

Bernard Cazeneuve said late Thursday there were no links "at this stage" between the plan and the attacks in Paris or Brussels.

Cazeneuve said bomb squads were on site. The raid took place in Argenteuil, on the northern outskirts of the French capital.

He noted that the person arrested was implicated at a "high level" in the plot, but offered no details.
