MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Here is a look at the four stories you need to know for Wednesday, April 22.
Attempted Terrorist Attack In Paris
Police in France prevented the possibility of attack when they arrested a suspected Islamic extremist Sunday morning.
French officials said a 24-year-old IT student was arrested in possession of a significant arsenal of weapons.
They believe he is an Islamic radical who planned attacks on one or two churches.
He is also a suspect in a murder.
France has been on high alert since the Paris terror attacks of early January that left 17 people dead.
Trek Bicycle Corporation Issues Recall
The federal government is recalling nearly a million bikes after a rider was paralyzed.
Trek is recalling the bikes built between 2000 and 2015 because a quick-release lever on the front-wheel hub can come into contact with the brake. The wheel then separates or comes off.
Three accidents have been reported and injuries were severe. In one case a rider was paralyzed.
