Pizze­ria at­tack: A man be­lieved to be un­der the in­flu­ence of drugs – and pos­si­bly suf­fer­ing from se­vere men­tal health prob­lems – de­lib­er­ately crashed his car into the out­door ter­race of a pizze­ria in a vil­lage near Paris on Mon­day night, killing a 13-year-old girl and in­jur­ing her younger brother and 12 other peo­ple. The in­ci­dent hap­pened in Sept-Sorts, 34 miles east of the cap­i­tal, close to the town of La Ferté-sous-Jouarre. It is the lat­est in a string of at­tacks across France and else­where in which a ve­hi­cle has been used as a weapon. Last week a man rammed a group of sol­diers in Paris, in­jur­ing six, be­fore be­ing shot and wounded as he tried to es­cape. The pizze­ria at­tack is not be­ing treated as a ter­ror­ist of­fence. The driver, a 32-year-old French­man, sur­vived and is in cus­tody; he had at­tempted to kill him­self in the week be­fore the at­tack, of­fi­cials said.
