4 U.S. WOMEN AT­TACKED WITH ACID IN MAR­SEILLE

USA TODAY International Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
