PARIS (Reuters) - French anti-terrorist police have arrested 10 far-right militants, a court official said on Tuesday.

The official declined to detail why the men were arrested, but TV station M6 said that the 10 were suspected of planning attacks on French politicians and on Muslim places of worship.

It added that the men, aged between 17 and 25, were arrested in Seine-Saint-Denis, north of Paris, and in the Mediterranean port city of Marseille.

More than 230 people have been killed in attacks by Islamist militants in France over the past three years and the country has been under a state of emergency since late 2015, following an attack on Paris in November 2015.
