PARIS (Reuters) - French police carried out counter-terrorism swoop in a region north of Paris on Thursday, police and justice officials said.

The swoop in the Argenteuil area north of the capital city was not directly connected to last week's deadly attack in the southern French costal city of Nice, the justice official said.
