A car containing two gas cylinders was discovered near a synagogue in the southern-French city of Marseille.

The suspicious vehicle was spotted shortly before 11 a.m. on Saturday near a local Jewish community center and a synagogue. Police sappers were called to the scene. The area has been blocked for traffic and pedestrians.

Just a few days ago, a similar vehicle was found near the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Three women were arrested for suspected involvement and admitted that they had acted on orders that had come from an ISIS terror activist.
