The Frenchman who had planned attacks to be carried out during Euro 2016 has been detained, according to Ukrainian officials.

Gregoire Moutaux, 25, was taken into custody on the Ukrainian border with Poland when he was found with a collection of weapons, including guns, detonators and TNT, last month. Moutaux had reportedly planned 15 attacks on bridges, highways, a mosque and a synagogue during the tournament, as a result of his ultra-nationalist views.

Euro 2016 will feature 90,000 police and other security officers on site to patrol fan zones and stadiums in the wake of last November’s terrorists attacks in Paris.
