    French authorities opened a terrorism investigation Friday after one person was decapitated in an apparent Islamist attack on an American-owned gas factory in southeastern France.

    French President Francois Hollande said the attack, at the Air Products plant in Saint-Quentin Fallavier, bore the hallmarks of terrorism and that security has been stepped up at sensitive sites.

    A decapitated body was found with an inscription written on it, Hollande told reporters.

    He said there was "no doubt" that the attacker - possibly acting with an accomplice - intended to blow up the entire plant. Two people were injured, he added.

    French prosecutors opened a counterterrorism investigation into the attack,

    An interior ministry official told NBC News that an explosion occurred after a car The official — who requested anonymity — said that a decapitated body was found near the scene and that a man has been arrested.

    A severed head was found hanging on a fence along a nearby road, according to local newspaper La Dauphine Libere, which reported that the arrested suspect was in his 30s and known to security forces. It said that an Islamist flag was found at the scene.

    Air Products, based in Allentown, Pennsylvania, said the situation at the site had been "contained."

    "Our priority at this stage is to take care of our employees, who have been evacuated from the site and all accounted for," it said.

    French interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve was on his way to the scene. Defense minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced an emergency meeting would be held at the Elysee in Paris later Friday.

    The beheaded person was not a worker at the factory, Le Monde reported, citing prosecutors.

    France has been on high alert following the deadly January attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket.

    Hollande, who announced he was returning early from a European summit in Brussels, spoke of "the necessity to protect our values and never give in to fear and not to create any unnecessary division and suspicions [which] would be intolerable and unacceptable."

    Air Products supplies industrial gases to businesses and employs more than 20,000 people in 50 countries, according to its website.

    I find this very upsetting. It seems only a matter of time before this shit starts happening in other European countries.
