The suspect is an IT student previously unknown to police, Lyon's mayor Gerard Collomb said. Police have also questioned his sister but she has not been arrested, the Paris prosecutors added. Prosecutors had on Friday opened an investigation over "attempted murders linked to a terrorist organisation".
