Toulouse vehicle 'attack': Three injured as auto hits students

French police officers

The attack came days after China asked France to "ensure the security" of its nationals, who have been regular victims of thieves.

Two people have reportedly been seriously wounded while all the injured are said to be of Chinese origin.

One police source told the French news agency the driver "deliberately" tried to ram the students with his auto, one of whom is in serious condition.

On November 2, a group of around 40 Chinese tourists were attacked with teargas and robbed outside a three-star hotel near Paris's Orly Airport.

The crash took place in front of Saint-Exupery high school in the suburb of Blagnac.


Media in France have quoted sources in the police who believe the attack was deliberate.

He was arrested minutes after the attack.

French police told the AFP news agency that the man driving the Renault Clio was arrested immediately afterwards in Blagnac, in the Haute-Garonne region. Two were taken to a hospital with injuries that were considered serious, but not life-threatening.

The public prosecutor has visited the scene of the accident and for the moment there has been no suggestion that it is an act of terrorism. "We offer all our support to them and their loved ones".
