His police custody was automatically lifted.

The 51-year-old woman, who threatened to blow herself up at Part-Dieu train station in Lyon on Thursday afternoon indicating that there was a bomb in her travel bag, was finally interned.

The suspect suffers from a psychiatric disorder.

The prosecution confirmed his hospitalization.

Resident in the 9th arrondissement of Lyon, the fifty-something had made confused remarks during her arrest, which had taken place without incident, as well as during the first hours of her police custody.

Many trains had been diverted at Vaise and Perrache stations, accumulating significant delays there.
