French police have released an image of a bombing suspect after seven people were injured in a “low force” blast in Lyon.
An anti-terrorism investigation was launched after the attack at a Brioche Doree bakery at roughly 5.30pm local time (4.30pm BST).
Denis Broliquier, the mayor of Lyon’s second district, told French media that a man was captured on surveillance cameras dropping a sack or suitcase before it exploded.
Some victims suffered leg wounds but no injuries were life-threatening, authorities said.
The attack in the city’s central Presqu’ile area came as the country prepared to vote in the European elections.
President Emmanuel Macron called the explosion an “attack” during a live interview about the elections on Friday.Third Day of European Parliament Voting
