The French authorities have placed in pretrial detention a 20-year-old French man suspected of preparing a plan for mass murder and accused of preparing an "individual terrorist project," a source familiar with the matter announced on Saturday.


The sources indicated that the 20-year-old was spotted on social media and encrypted messages under the pseudonym "Heinrich Himmler 88," which confirmed information published by the daily "Le Parisien".


The sources added that he was making positions belonging to the neo-Nazis and threatened in videos to attack "Jews, blacks, women, and the gay community."


The informed source said that the man confessed to the police his admiration for Nazi ideology but "denied his desire to use a weapon" to commit murder.


The sources said, "He is in a state of turmoil and is very upset with several groups of people who allegedly abused him when he was younger."
