Dinan, France: Police were trying to establish yesterday if a bomb which killed a woman at a McDonald's restaurant was the work of Breton nationalists or extremist campaigners against globalisation.

The device went off mid-morning at the drive-in counter outside a branch of the American-owned fast-food chain near Dinan in northern Brittany. The 27-year-old employee was thrown several metres by the blast, which also blew off part of the roof of the building, shattered windows and left a large crater. A special anti-terrorist judge was sent from Paris to head the investigation.
