    Sorry, we were starting threads at the same time but I've asked a mod to merge mine here.

    French media have been reporting the attack was carried out by two suspects holding black Islamist flags. There is a huge, huge police presence at the factory in Saint Quentin Fallavier right now.

    Remember after Charlie Hebdo when the attackers there fled to a carpet factory/showroom? WTH? It's just so strange...

    AFP are confusing me. They are 'breaking' news that President Hollande says there may be a second attacker, but that was being reported ages ago. I thought he/she must have been killed but it seems like they are on the loose. Oh no.

    Do you have a source for this information about alleged frequency of attacks?

    Do you have a source for the alleged tie-in of the Post-reported incident with your targeted religion?

    The factory that was the focus of the attack was the multinational "Air Products" which produces gases for medical and industrial uses (mostly flammable products). The terrorist attackers who set off the explosions inside the plant were obviously hoping for major secondary explosions which thankfully did not occur or we would be dealing with a mass casualty situation this morning.

    You make a statement in the OP that "we historically see a spike in attacks on so-called 'infidels'" during Ramadan. I am asking for proof of that allegation.

    If you can neither do that nor link your other info above, perhaps then this thread should stick to its objective topic, viz., the horrible attack in France.

    It is a well known fact that terrorist attacks increase during Ramadan but since you are not aware of this here is a MSM link

    Suspect has been identified

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/liv...y-live-updates

    The arrested suspect Yacinne Sali, is a 35-year-old, who was in “in contact with a salafist movement”, Cazeneuve’s statement said.

    He was described as living in the Lyon area at Saint-Priest. “He had been noted for his radicalisation, but was not known to have any links to terrorist figures,” Cazeneuve added.
    The company attacked is American owned.

    Thanks.

    I do note as an exception that this information is very limited in scope, and does come in an article from five years ago, quoting a deputy commanding general of U.S. forces in Iraq, speaking exclusively of incidents there.
