The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Paris: A po­lice source says the sus­pect in an at­tack on sol­diers near Paris is a 37-year-old Al­ge­rian man who was legally liv­ing in France. The man, Hamou Ben­la­treche, was known to French po­lice over mi­nor crimes but has never been con­victed in court, the of­fi­cer told The As­so­ci­ated Press Thurs­day. He spoke anony­mously be­cause he was not al­lowed to speak on an on­go­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion. French me­dia, who re­ported the same name, say the sus­pect was liv­ing in the sub­urb of Be­zons, north of Paris, where po­lice searched a build­ing on Wed­nes­day night. The sus­pect rammed his car into a group of sol­diers Wed­nes­day, in­jur­ing six of them. He was ar­rested by po­lice fol­low­ing a high­way man­hunt and was hos­pi­talised with bul­let wounds. AP
