ISIS claims responsibility for attacks in France, Kuwait and Tunisia

A decapitated body daubed with Arabic writing was found at a U.S.-owned factory in southeast France on Friday after an assailant rammed a delivery van into gas containers at the site, triggering an explosion.
In Tunisia, gunmen opened fire at a beach resort, killing at least 27 people, officials said. At least one of the attackers was killed by security forces.
And a blast outside a mosque killed 25 and injured more than 200 people in Kuwait.

While authorities in each country were investigating, the timing of the attacks raised the possibility that militants from the group that has seized territory in Iraq and Syria were increasingly inspiring sympathizers to plan and carry out attacks in their own countries.

Speaking from a European Union summit in Brussels, French President Francois Hollande described it as a terrorist attack and said all measures would be taken to stop any future strikes on a country still reeling from Islamist assaults in January.

The official Kuwait News Agency reported that an explosion struck the Imam Sadiq Mosque, which is located in the neighbourhood of al-Sawabir, a residential and shopping district of Kuwait City.

According to Tunisian interior ministry, at least 28 people, including guests, were killed when a man armed with an assault rifle opened fire.
