French police arrested a total of 12 people in two separate raids in southern France Tuesday as part of the country's current counterterrorism campaign, according to the French Interior Ministry.

One raid in Marseilles and Avignon led to nine arrests and a seizure of guns and ammunition by the French police, Agence France-Presse reported. In another operation, three men were arrested, two in Marseilles and one in Bordeaux, after their contact information was found in the cellphone of a French-Algerian man arrested in Italy this weekend with a bombmaking kit, Bloomberg Businessweek reported.
