Officers in the capital arrested the young man, who lives in the northern outskirts of Paris, at his home last Thursday, after being alerted when he inquired online about purchasing a Kalashnikov assault rifle. The man was given preliminary charges Saturday of individual terrorist activity. They released details of the case Monday.

The top date in France's ceremonial calendar, the July 14 parade commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 - the start of the French Revolution and a turning point in world history. Thousands of American soldiers will march alongside French troops to commemorate the centenary of the United States entering the First World War.

On Bastille Day in 2002, then president Jacques Chirac was the target of an assassination attempt on the avenue.

According to an official assessment, the man was "psychologically unstable but conscious (of his actions) and determined". The office also added that his plans were vague and not yet finalized.

After his arrest, he told police he wanted to attack "Muslims, Jews, blacks, homosexuals", a foreign news agency said. Investigators later found more weapons in his auto.

The suspect had previous convictions for terrorism-related offenses.

Xi departs Hong Kong after speech, inauguration
Earlier, China's President Xi presided over a swearing-in ceremony for Carrie Lam, Hong Kong's fifth chief executive since 1997. Minor scuffles broke out under a blue sky as pro-democracy activists, some with banners bearing the words "Democracy".

He had applauded neo-Nazi mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in a bomb and gun rampage in 2011 in Norway.

Mr Macron said he would maintain France's military interventions against extremists overseas.

In his bid to strengthen the European Union following Britain's vote to leave, he announced Europe-wide public conferences later this year in an effort to reinvigorate the bloc.

Opposition lawmakers from three parties including the far-left France Unbowed boycotted Macron's address, and about 100 Communists wearing the red caps of the French revolutionaries of 1789 demonstrated in front of Versailles' town hall. He said they called him a "traitor" and made death threats.

France has been reeling from a spate of terrorist attacks over the past years. Since, there have been several other attacks by Islamist extremists, including the Nice truck incident when a man killed 86 people by driving a vehicle into a crowd.

In his 90-minute speech, during which TV cameras caught ministers dozing, Macron said, as he did throughout the election campaign, that he wanted to unite the French around a "conquest spirit" that he said had been lacking, whether "during the still years, or the agitated years" - an allusion to the presidencies of socialist François Hollande and conservative Nicolas Sarkozy.
