The bomber who set off an improvised explosive device outside a bakery in Lyon, France last week did so for ISIS, according to French authorities.

“France’s counter-terrorism prosecutor says the main suspect in the bombing last week in the French city of Lyon that wounded 14 people had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State,” said The New York Post. 

He admitted his allegiance to the terrorist organization upon his arrest.

Mohamed Hichem M. of Algeria arrived in France on a tourist visa in 2017, which has long expired, making him an illegal immigrant. Prior to last week’s bombing, he was not on the radar of French authorities. He was arrested Monday along with three other suspects, including two family members.

Big League Politics reported:

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.”
