President Francois Hollande has raised the security level in France to its highest possible point, following the terror attack near Lyon.
Hollande described the attack as "cowardly" and has promised that thousands of police officers will be deployed across France in order to improve security.
The French president said this morning's incident had "all the hallmarks of a terrorist attack," adding that the suspect in custody had been identified.
Francois Hollande said there was "no doubt" the terrorists, one man and an accomplice, meant to cause an explosion at the factory near Lyon.
"A decapitated body was found with inscription written on it. There is one dead and two injured" Hollande told a press conference at the Brussels summit.
France will "never give into fear" and the attack must not "create unnecessary division," he added.
