Islamist beheads French factory worker, hangs his head on a fence, injures dozens in explosion

Islamic terror in France today at an American-owned factory. 

from Daily Mail:

A man has been decapitated and dozens more injured at a gas product factory in France by terrorists carrying Islamist banners.

The attack took place at the headquarters of the American owned Air Products, in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, near the city of Lyon, in the south east of the country.

The murder is believed to have been accompanied by several explosions on the site cause by a terrorist igniting small ‘gas bombs’ that injured dozens of factory workers. It is thought the explosions may have intended to blow up the entire factory site but failed.

The murdered man’s head is understood to have been found 30 feet away from his body, hanging on the factory’s fence and covered in Arabic writing.

A 30-year-old man - named by French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve as father-of-three Yassine Salhi who is understood to have been known to security services since at least 2006 - has already been arrested at the scene, telling police officers that he is a member of the Islamic State terror group. The man is believed not to have a criminal record but was considered to have 'possibly been radicalised’.

Local media reported that a second person has since been arrested in relation to the attack - believed to be the man who drove the Ford Fusion car around the factory moments before the attack took place.

Another “known wolf” attack.  Authorities knew this guy was dangerous but neglected to keep proper tabs on him.  When are people going to begin taking radical Islam seriously?


Arachnid attack? Giant robot spider occupies French street

For a moment you might think you are watching a Hollywood blockbuster, but the scene actually took place in western France on Saturday.

The giant, eight-legged mechanical spider named Kumo was taken by its human drivers on a tour in front of Nantes Cathedral. But instead of screaming and running for their lives, the curious crowd gathered around the 38-ton mammoth creature, pointing their cameras at it.

The steel beast was manufactured by French factory Les Machines de L'Ile 8 years ago.
