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.

Sousse, Tunisia – Omar Abbouda was 27 years old when he joined Jabhat al-Nusra (al-Nusra Front) to fight against the Syrian regime. Last year, he was killed in the battlefield.
“I have only learned about his travel to Syria through one of his friends,” Alhadi Abbouda, Omar’s father, told Al Jazeera. “He [Omar’s friend] told me Omar had gone ‘to do God’s will and to protect those being exterminated by Bashar al-Assad,” added Alhadi, who remained in touch with his son while the latter was in Syria.
Alhadi said that his son, who dropped out of his secondary education due to poor academic performance, was not particularly religious.
Thousands of young men from across Tunisia have left their home country in this way, with Sousse providing perhaps up to 1,000 of them.
