Gee, I wonder what kind of an “attack” it is? Macron won’t say, but the Paris terrorism police are confirming the government considers it to have been a probable “terror” attack. (And we know what that usually means)
Breitbart (h/t Maurice) The suspected parcel bomb detonated on Victor-Hugo Road in Lyon, south-east France around 1730 eastern Europe time (1130 ET) and is reported to have been a package stuffed with “nails, screws, bolts”. The eight injured, which includes an eight-year-old girl, are reported to have sustained light injuries.
Lyon newspaper Le Progress reports French President Emmanuel Macron, who spoke of an attack about the explosion, remarking; “There was an attack in Lyon… there are no fatalities. There are wounded, so I obviously want to have a thought for the wounded, their families.”
The President was joined in his comments by populist political rival Marine Le Pen:
Lyon Mayor Denis Broliquier said: “certainly, it was a device intended to hurt, it was an explosive device… I was warned by several direct witnesses. The explosive device was in a bag, deposited by a man, filmed by the CCTV of the city of Lyon.”
