Paris – French President Francois Hollande says he is raising the security alert to the highest level for three days in the southeastern region where a suspect attacked an American gas factory.
Hollande spoke after a high-level security meeting Friday afternoon, hours after the attack on the factory left two people wounded.
In addition, a local businessman was found decapitated at the factory site, along with banners carrying Arabic inscriptions.
French police say they have the main suspect in custody, along with the suspect’s wife and others. Hollande says the key question is to determine whether there were any accomplices.
