Paris ‘ter­ror’ at­tack

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

PARIS: A car rammed into a group of sol­diers in a Parisian sub­urb yes­ter­day, in­jur­ing six be­fore speed­ing off in what of­fi­cials called a sus­pected ter­ror at­tack.

The ve­hi­cle, a BMW, was parked in an al­ley be­fore it ac­cel­er­ated into the sol­diers as they left their bar­racks to go on pa­trol, said Pa­trick Balkany, mayor of Le­val­loisPer­ret. “The ve­hi­cle did not stop. It hur­tled at them… it ac­cel­er­ated rapidly.” Armed Forces Min­is­ter Florence Parly said the driver was on the run. A probe had started into “the mo­tives and cir­cum­stances for the cow­ardly act”. Reuters
