Paris: French police have found bomb-making materials and arms during investigation of radical Islamists arrested over the weekend, an official said Wednesday.

Prosecutor Francois Molins said the police have found a shotgun, a revolver, potassium nitrate, sulphur and a pressure cooker in a garage used by one of the suspects.

A list of Jewish groups in the Paris region was also found, he said.

"These are all products used to make what we call improvised explosives," Xinhua quoted Molins as saying.

Last Saturday, police raided a radical Islamists cell during which one person was killed and 12 others were arrested.
