One person was decapitated and several others were injured in an apparent terror attack at a chemical factory in eastern France Friday morning, local media reported.

According to Le Dauphine newspaper, a loud explosion was reported at approximately 9:50 a.m. local time in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, northwest of the Alpine city of Grenoble.

According to the paper, a man walked into the company’s offices saying he was a member of ISIS and carrying one of the terror group’s flags. After beheading a man at the company’s entrance, he went into the building and set off several gas canisters.

A French security official told the Associated Press that two attackers arrived at the factory in a car, bearing banners written in Arabic, and set off an explosion. One of the attackers was arrested, and local media reported that the man was known to authorities.

French authorities tell Fox News that approximately ten people were injured. A local police deputy described the attack as “definitely” a terrorist act.
