Gov. Wolf Extends Condolences To Victims Of French Attack

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf is extending his condolences to victims of the attack at an Allentown-based company's gas factory in France.

The governor said Friday that the company, Air Products, is an important part of Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley. He says state police are monitoring any potential threats within the state.

French authorities say the attack left two people wounded and that a local businessman was found decapitated at the factory site, along with banners carrying Arabic inscriptions.

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski called Air Products a good corporate citizen. He expressed his sadness over the attacks and said he hopes the perpetrators will be brought to justice.
