Two of the men are brothers, aged 35 and 23, another aspiring jihadist, aged 52. All communicating with a radicalized prisoner who communicated via a cell phone from his prison cell. While the precise target is unknown, the police think they were using the nationwide fuel protests happening in France as a potential target.
