Car plows into crowd in France:
A man drove into a crowd of patrons gathered outside a bar in the southern city of Nimes early Friday, slightly wounding two before hitting a security barrier and being arrested, witnesses and local officials said.
The 32-year-old suspect, believed to be a local, sped towards a crowd of about 50 outside the bar at around 1:00 am (2300 GMT Thursday), witnesses at the scene told AFP.
However his white Peugeot ran into barriers set up for a popular weekend festival featuring bull-fighting which attracts thousands of people each year.
Several witnesses told AFP that the man shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) during the incident.
A source close to the investigation said the man was not known to police for suspected radicalisation. (AFP)
