(AP) Overnight raids by French police across France have resulted in 25 arrests and the seizure of 34 weapons.
The new tally was announced Wednesday by the Interior Ministry.
The arrests are the latest in a nationwide police dragnet that has seen nightly raids by security forces under powers granted by the state of emergency declared after last week's attacks in Paris.
In all, French police have carried out 414 raids and made 60 arrests while seizing 75 weapons since Friday. The captured armory includes 11 military-style firearms, 33 rifles and 31 handguns. In addition to dozens of arrests, 118 more people have been placed under house arrest in another of the new powers permitted under France's state of emergency.
Parliament is expected to extend the state of emergency for three months later this week.
