4 U.S. WOMEN ATTACKED WITH ACID IN MARSEILLE
Four young female U.S. tourists were attacked with acid Sunday in the French city of Marseille by a woman who has been arrested, the Marseille prosecutor’s office said.
Two of the tourists were injured in the face in the attack in the city’s main Saint Charles train station, and one of them has a possible eye injury, a spokeswoman for the Marseille prosecutor’s office told The Associated Press.
She said all four of the tourists, who are in their 20s, have been hospitalized, two of them for shock. She said a 41-year-old female suspect has been arrested.
The spokeswoman said there were no immediate indications that the attack was terror-related but added officials can’t rule out terror links at such an early stage of the investigation.
