Three Chinese injured in vehicle attack in south France

Three Chinese students were injured Friday when a man deliberately ran over them with his auto near the city of Toulouse, France, police said.

The three injured, one male and two female, are all at their early 20s, said the consulate.

Local media reports citing police say the act was deliberate.

French police clarified however, that the 28-year-old driver is not on a security watch-list and after an investigation the public prosecutor said there are no indications that the vehicle attack was an act of terrorism. The victims were believed to be aged 22 and 23 years old.

French media said the driver, a 28-year-old man, was arrested several minutes later.

The Toulouse region's daily newspaper, LaDepeche, said the three students were in Blagnac for a French-Chinese program at a private business school. They have since been taken to hospital in Toulouse.

The driver attempted to drive off but was stopped by police and arrested straight away.

The BFM news channel said the man was known to police for previous non-terror crimes and officers were checking reports he suffered from major psychological problems, AFP reported.

He said: "At this point, we are looking at the psychiatric profile of the suspect, who was sentenced a dozen times and was subject to probation and care obligations".
