U.S. Senator Jack Reed says the focus should be intelligence after a terrorist attack at an American gas company in France. The attack included an explosion that killed one person and injured about a dozen others.

"What you’re seeing are these lone wolf attacks," Reed said. "Very difficult to disrupt because there’s not a lot of hierarchical organization. It’s an individual one or two, who are self-radicalized in many cases."

Reed cited the need for good intelligence and cooperation between law enforcement agencies to combat this type of terrorism, noting similar attacks in Tunisia and Kuwait.

"We have to again focus on intelligence, law enforcement cooperation and disrupt these attacks before they can take place, rather than just responding," Reed said.
