A ‘far-right extremist’ has been arrested for plotting to shoot French President Emmanuel Macron in front of Donald Trump on Bastille Day.

The plot, by the unnamed 23-year-old Frenchman, was foiled when he tried to get hold of a Kalashnikov assault rifle online.

Prosecuting sources in the French capital said the man was from the ‘extreme-right’ and wanted to murder Mr Macron, as well as ‘blacks, Arabs, Jews and homosexuals’.

He was indicted with terrorism offences last Saturday, with details of the case released today.

The suspect, who comes from the Paris area, planned to target Mr Macron as he took the salute at the Bastille Day celebrations on July 14.

President Trump will be this year’s guest of honour on France’s national day, which recalls the storming of the Bastille fortress during the French Revolution of 1789.

One of the biggest security operations in French history will unfold on the Champs Elysee and the Place de la Concorde for the event, which will involve thousands of French and American troops.

The would-be attacker mentioned his search for a weapon on a video games forum that was being monitored by intelligence officers.
When anti-terrorism police turned up at his flat in the suburb of Argenteuil last Wednesday, he threatened them with a kitchen knife.
