ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) French President Francois Hollande addressed a news conference in Brussels hours after the attack in southeast France. "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," he said. 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 U.S. gas company in southeast France on Friday (June 26), exploding gas containers. A decapitated head covered in Arab writing was found at the site.
