Several Hurt In Package Bomb Blast In France

Police officers guard the road leading to a plant where an attack took place in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier southeast of Lyon France Friday

A "low force" blast hit a busy pedestrian street Friday in the French city of Lyon, injuring seven people as it shattered the glass from a refrigerated shop cooler, a local official said.

The explosion in the French city of Lyon occurred outside a branch of the bakery chain Brioche Doree and the victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to AFP.

Lyon newspaper Le Progress reports French President Emmanuel Macron, who spoke of an attack about the explosion, remarking; "There was an attack in Lyon... there are no fatalities".

A police source said the package contained "screws or bolts" and had been placed in front of a bakery on the corner of the two popular streets. "There are wounded, so I obviously want to have a thought for the wounded, their families".

"It's not for me to give a toll but it appears there are no casualties", said Macron.

Following the blast, soldiers secured the area of the explosion. The prosecutor's office said it is believed to have been caused by an explosive device, possibly a package bomb.
