    French police search for man who left bomb in Lyon

    LYON (Reuters) - Police hunted on Saturday for a man who left a bomb in a pedestrian shopping street in the central French city of Lyon on Friday that wounded 13 people, including a 10-year-old girl.

    Ninety police investigators supported by 30 scientific officers and technicians as well as local police were searching for the man, who was seen on security cameras at around 5.30 p.m. on Friday, anti-terrorism prosecutor Remy Heitz told reporters in Paris.

    The man was seen leaving a paper bag in front of a bakery. The package exploded about a minute after he left.


    French police were able to track the movements of the man, who appeared to be around 30 years old, for 10 minutes before the attack and are still trying to identify him. The man, who had a bicycle, was wearing sunglasses and a cap.

    There has been no claim of responsibility yet for the bomb, Heitz said, calling for witnesses to help police find the suspect. On Saturday evening, police released additional photos of the suspect riding the bicycle.


    A source close to the investigation said traces of DNA were isolated from the remnants of the bomb. Police found the attacker used triacetone triperoxide or TATP, a powerful homemade explosive.

    Common sense or use the Google search function and type bombing.

    If there is a bomb attack in Europe about 86.5% chance = muslim
    + If it happens in France about 92% = muslim
    + If the bomber is algerian about 95% = muslim
    + If his name is Mohamed about 98.5% = muslim
    + If he is pledging allegiance to the IS 100% = muslim

    Sometimes you just have to use your brain or Google

    There's a 100% chance that Herman will take the opportunity to turn anything into a rant about Muslims.

    Not even a thread on it, let alone someone popping up on it with a stock ‘must be a middle aged white man’ post.

    And if the bomber would have been a non-muslim bombing a mosque you would have done overtime here again on TD.
