French police seized large quantities of weapons
The French police forces RAID and GIPN, conducted a total of 150 anti terrorist operations in several French cities on Monday. In Lyon, they found large quantities of weapons and war equipment.

Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris, which has so far claimed 129 lives, has led to a large-scale hunt for dangerous terrorist cells in France and other European countries.

Monday night, the counterterrorism forces GIPN (Groupe d'Intervention de la Police Nationale) and RAID (Recherche Assistance Intervention Dissuasion) took action in several French cities, according to the British newspaper The Guardian.

In total, 150 operations were conducted, 13 of them in Lyon, where police confiscated large quantities of weapons, including Kalashnikov rifles, pistols and bulletproof vests, and a rocket launcher. Five people were arrested.

According to AFP, the raids are not directly associated with the terrorist attacks Friday. They are however, part of a larger anti-terrorist action, and happens because of the state of emergency in the country, which gives the police the authority to act preventively. President François Hollande has announced that it will last for three months.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls confirmed Monday morning that a series of coordinated police actions have been carried out.

- We use the room that the state of emergency gives us, and we are interviewing people who are part of the radical jihadist movement, and all those who promote hatred against our country, the Prime Minister said to the radio station RTL.

200 armed police officers participated in the operations.
