French prosecutor confirms terrorist motive, ISIS link to factory beheading

Paris: A French prosecutor confirmed Tuesday that the man who beheaded his boss and tried to blow up a gas factory in Lyon had a “terrorist motive” and links to the Islamic State group in Syria.

Yassin Salhi`s attack “last Friday corresponded very precisely to the orders of (the Islamic State group)”, said Paris chief prosecutor Francois Molin and “resembled a martyr operation”, while also being motivated by a personal hatred for his boss.
