French police have responded to a large explosion on a passenger train in France and have sealed off the area where the explosion occurred. France has become a favorite target for ISIS because they don’t fight back like some other countries do.
From The Daily Mirror:
As many as eight passengers are believed to have been injured in the explosion, either in the apparent blast or from smoke inhalation.
It is unclear at this time what caused the explosion, but security personnel are believed have sealed off the area.
Dozens of armed police are at the scene around the Place d’Italie as the situation is investigated.
France is on a high state of alert following a series of horrifying terror attacks over the past two years, including the Charlie Hebdo murders in Paris and the Nice lorry massacre.
President Francois Hollande had declared a state of emergency in France and war on terrorism after the attacks shook the country to its core.
The country has been living in fear of a fresh attack by jihadis, but tonight’s explosion is not currently thought to be terror-related.
Of course in France nothing is terror related until it’s so obvious it is they have to break down and accept it.
