In the U.S. we woke up Friday morning to the news of three separate terrorist attacks in France, Tunisia, and Kuwait. While authorities struggle to see if there is a connection, we mourn for those lost.

In France, terrorists attacked an American-owned industrial chemical plant near Lyon. One person was decapitated and the attackers unsuccessfully tried to blow up the building.
In Tunisia, gunmen attacked a beach resort killing at least 27 people, according to officials. It was reported that one attackers was filled by security.
In Kuwait City, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for an explosion at a mosque. Reports said eight people had been injured.
Investigations launched almost immediately to see if all three attacks are linked.
