Car crashes into students in France

A vehicle has "deliberately" mowed down terrified pedestrians after mounting a pavement near a high school in north west France - leaving at least three injured.

A driver was arrested after the collision, and the Toulouse prosecutor has been called to investigate, the ministry said. The incident occurred outside a college in the suburb of Blagnac.

The injured were Chinese students, including two who were seriously hurt in the incident.

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 auto attack was an act of terrorism.
