PARIS - 25 May 2019: At least 13 people have been injured in an explosion in the French city of Lyon, officials said.

The prosecutor's office said a suspected parcel bomb was the cause of the explosion, Euronews reported on Friday.

Most of those hurt were hospitalized for treatment to leg injuries that were described as "light".

The Paris counter-terrorism prosecutor has opened a probe into the blast.

The suspect was captured on security video leaving a bag in front of a bakery shortly before an explosion occurred at around 5:30 pm local time, police sources and local mayor Denis Broliquier said.

French President Emmanuel Macron described it as an "attack" with no fatalities.
