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.”

PURE EVIL: Churches Torched and Razed to the Ground During Anti-Government Riots in Chile

Published

on

Another one of those “mostly peaceful protests” erupted over the weekend in Santiago, Chile, on the anniversary of last year’s protests—read: riots—against the Chilean government.

On Sunday demonstrators and criminals smashed up businesses, looted stores, attacked police, and even vandalized and burned two churches.

The riots happened one week prior to a referendum on a new constitution, of which the rioters are in favor. The current constitution was written during the autocratic rule of General Augusto Pinochet, with two-thirds of the Chilean electorate voting to adopt it back in 1980.

In addition to supporting a new constitution, the rioters claim to be dissatisfied with persisting economic inequality, inadequate health care, and insufficient pensions. This is despite, as the Wall Street Journal points out, economic growth and decreasing poverty over the years.

Some Chileans may have some legitimate grievances—I’m by no means an expert on the Chilean economy or political situation—but I will always side against the protesters when I see churches being desecrated and city blocks being destroyed. Far-left agitators are without a doubt behind these horrifying scenes. It’s too bad we no longer have General Pinochet around to deal with these Marxists the proper way.
