France Factory Attack ‘Designed to Cause an Explosion’ – ABC News
One person was found decapitated and two others were injured following an apparent terrorist attack at an American-owned factory in France today, authorities said.
The attack happened in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier in southeastern France. French President Francois Hollande, speaking at a news conference, said the incident bears the hallmarks of a terrorist attack, and it was designed to cause an explosion.
One suspect was taken into custody, authorities said. The investigation into the attack is ongoing.
The factory is owned by Air Products & Chemicals, a Pennsylvania-based company.
At least 17 people have been killed in terror-related violence in France this year. In January, gunmen attacked the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. The men suspected in that attack were later killed in raids at a Kosher supermarket and print shop.
