Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin told French broadcaster RMC radio on October 30 that Paris plans to deport 39 Russian citizens who, according to French officials, are followers of radical Islam.

It is not clear whether four teenagers, including three from Russia’s North Caucasus regions of Chechnya and Ingushetia, who were detained last week on suspicion of planning an attack at the Israeli Embassy in Paris are among those designated for deportation.

The teenagers were detained about one week after a 20-year-old native of Ingushetia stabbed a teacher to death and injured three others in a school in Arras.
