Man rams vehicle into students in Toulouse, arrested

The attack happened near the French city of Toulous

At least three people were injured after a auto rammed into passers-by in Blagnac commune near Toulouse, southwest France.

Toulouse prosecutor Pierre-Yves Couilleau told reporters that three students were injured on Friday when the motorist drove into the group, near a university campus in the city of Blagnac.

The investigation is to be handled by regular judicial police rather than Paris's anti-terror unit, he said.

The French news channel BFM reports the driver, who was immediately arrested, was known to authorities for previous crimes but was not on a list of known extremists.




The case was not been referred to France's counterterrorism prosecutors. The suspect was known to police before for minor offenses, however. The officials said he lived near the university.

Two victims are reportedly "between life and death" after a collision.

French TV station BFMTV and a local newspaper website both said at least two students were run down in a deliberate vehicle attack at around 4 p.m. local time on Friday. All three are thought to be of Chinese origin.
