PARIS (Web Desk) – A French couple has been arrested after police discovered a fake stomach used to make someone appear pregnant.

The couple from the southern town of Montpellier, aged 23 and 35 respectively, were initially arrested on charges of condoning terrorism. The national counter-terrorist prosecutors were brought in last week after investigators found the homemade fake stomach, which could have been used to hide objects.

Reports in foreign media confirmed no explosives were found but an analysis of their computer showed they had consulted bomb-making information and photos of terrorists.

The couple have not yet been charged. The arrest comes at a time when France is on high alert following the terror attacks in Paris of November 13 that left 130 dead.
