BRUSSELS - French President Francois Hollande said on Friday that an attack that morning in southeast France was of "a terrorist nature" and that a suspect had been arrested and identified.

"The attack was of a terrorist nature since a body was discovered, decapitated and with inscriptions. As I speak, there is one fatality and two injured," Hollande told a news conference in Brussels, where he was attending an EU summit.

He added that a considerable police force had been deployed in the region and other industrial sites protected to avoid any further incidents.

Two assailants rammed a car into the premises of a US gas company in southeast France on Friday, exploding gas containers. A decapitated head covered in Arab writing was found at the site.
