Bomber at the bakery.

Byline: Karen Rockett

POLICE hunting a bomber who injured 13 people at a bakery in France have released a CCTV image of the suspect.

The man, believed to be in his early 30s, was riding a mountain bike in the area moments before the blast.

He wore dark glasses, light coloured shorts and a long sleeved dark top and was filmed dropping a suitcase or bag before it exploded.

Police described him as "dangerous". An official source said the bomb contained "screws or bolts".

Among those hurt by the bomb, at the Brioche Doree bakery in Presqu'ile, Lyon, was an eight-year-old girl.

Town mayor Denis Broliquier said: "We're relieved because there were no serious injuries."

The attack came on Friday at 5.30pm as France went to the polls in the European elections.
