French authorities announced Monday that they have arrested four people in connection to last week’s bombing in Lyon, which injured 13.
“French police have arrested a 24-year-old Algerian computer student suspected of planting a bomb in Lyon last week that wounded 13 people, authorities said Monday,” according to CBC. “Three other people were also arrested in connection with the case, which is being treated as a terrorism investigation.”
Two of the other suspects in custody are the man’s mother and brother.
Police used security footage which showed the man wheeling a bicycle to the scene of the crime shortly before the bomb – made with metal balls and screws – exploded outside a popular bakery. Subsequent footage showed the masked man walking away from the scene of the crime.
“It’s a relief for all Lyon inhabitants. I believe the case has been resolved,” Lyon Mayor Gerard Collomb reportedly said. “If there was a network, it has been identified and will certainly be dismantled.”
The suspect’s name has not been released.
Big League Politics reported on the attack:
At least eight people were injured in a Friday “parcel bomb” attack in Lyon, France, according to multiple sources.
“The explosion happened near Rue Victor Hugo and Sala Street in the third largest city of France, about 300 miles southeast of Paris, according to the national police,” NBC said.
French president Emmanuel Macron described the incident as an “attack,” but provided no further details.
Lyon is France’s third-largest city.
EuroNews spoke with Canadian travel writer Kathy Buckworth, who is currently in Lyon.
“I was a block away and I heard it. They locked us in the store. I came out 10 minutes later and the police etc were arriving,” she reportedlysaid.
She described the explosion as “like a bomb, extremely loud.”

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship
They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.
At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.
Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.
Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.
The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.
At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.
There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
