Earlier this week, a man was decapitated at a gas factory in France, making this the second terrorist attack in six months.
Now residents are worried that the nation isn’t doing enough to stop the frequent terror attacks. One Paris civilian revealed,
“It feels that these attacks are now happening back to back. I am afraid that there will be more and more, just recently Charlie Hebdo and now this?”
French security forces have been very present since gunmen targeted the Paris office of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January.
According to reports, French authorities detained the lone suspect in the attack on a factory. Raymond Feyssaguet, the mayor of the nearby town of Villefontaine, identified the suspect as Yassin Salhi.
Paris Prosecutor François Molins revealed that the suspect has three children and has been married for 10 years. He does not have a police record, but in 2006 he was put on the terrorist watch list and “he continued to attract the attention of the intelligence services, particularly with regard to the Lyon region.”
The suspects wife and sister were also taken into custody.
