Police in France have found a decapitated body and a flag with Islamist inscriptions in a factory in the South East of France after an apparent terrorist attack Friday morning.
The factory belonged to a US multinational Air Products, in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier.
According to Police reports, the incident began at about 10am when two people apparently drove a car into the factory and detonated gas canisters. The attack left one person dead and several wounded. A human head was found at the site, as well as a flag bearing Islamist inscriptions.
Police say a man has been arrested but is refusing to talk.
President Francois Hollande has deployed troops in the region to prevent another attack.
Earlier he said the attacker had been identified but said there was an “ongoing investigation”.
He said: “Our thoughts go to the victims. The European Council expressed his solidarity – we remember what happened in our country and other countries.
“The attack was of a terrorist nature given that a corpse with Islamist inscriptions were found.”
