France Arrests Two 'who tried to join IS in Libya'

By John Lee.

Two French men have been arrested attempting to join Islamic State fighters in Libya.

AFP reports that the two, aged 19 and 20, were arrested in southern Tunisia and are now being held in Paris.

The two men, one from Lyon and the other from Marseille, did not know each other before meeting up in Tunisia, a source said.

Tunisia closed its border with Libya after an attack on a bus in which 12 presidential security officers were killed on 24th November.
