** According to initial findings a car was rammed into the factory morning causing a number of explosions that injured two people. Within hours a man was arrested who officials said had been investigated over possible ties to radical Islam. The assailant sent a selfie where he posed with the severed head of his boss, security sources say.
French media report the suspect was an employee of the decapitated man, identified as Herve Comara, 54, who owned a local delivery company. His delivery firm made regular trips to the factory, which is owned by the US-based company Air Products, Dauphine Libere newspaper reports.
The arrested suspect was officials named as Yassin Salhi, 35, married with 3 children from Saint-Priest, a suburb of Lyon. Yassin Salhi had been under surveillance by the secret services in 2006 for radicalisation but this investigation was not renewed in 2008.

A fireman near the scene caught Salhi, according to Cazeneuve. Salhi was believed to be wounded and was taken into custody in an ambulance escorted by firefighters and police vehicles. Yassin Salhi’s wife was also taken into custody by police.
A second suspect has been arrested at their home in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, and is believed to be the driver of the vehicle used to make the attack at the gas company.
