Paris — Six French citizens have had their passports confiscated after allegedly planning to travel to Syria, a security source said on Monday — the first time the measure has been used.

The source said the six were “imminently” about to travel to Syria. The right to remove passports was introduced as part of a raft of new counter-terrorism laws in November.
