Weapons, Molotov cocktail products found at flat of French Reunion shooting suspect

PARIS (Reuters) - Various weapons and ingredients used to make Molotov cocktails were found at the flat of a man suspected of wounding two police officers during a shooting incident on the French overseas territory of La Reunion, France’s Interior Minister said.

Interior Minister Matthias Fekl said in a statement that the suspect’s mother had also been arrested as part of the investigation, along with her son.

The Paris prosecutor’s counter-terrorism section opened an investigation into the incident after the two police officers were wounded on Thursday morning by the armed gunman.
