"However, the explosives, found in the toilets on the third floor of the store, had no detonators.

"As far as we understand, this was not a set-up that was designed to explode. We will lead the inquiry and find the authors," said interior minister Michèle Alliot-Marie.

French intelligence reportedly received information concerning a threat from Afghanistan three weeks ago."
