Paris attack: Hunt for car driven at soldiers, injuring six

A car has struck a group of soldiers in Paris, injuring six, two seriously, police say.

An urgent police operation is now under way to find the vehicle – reportedly a BMW – and the driver involved in the incident in the north-western suburb of Levallois-Perret.

The local mayor, Patrick Balkany, said he had no doubt that the “disgusting” act was deliberate.

Wednesday’s attack at about 08:15 local time (06:15 GMT) took place outside a military barracks on the Place de Verdun in Levallois-Perret, Balkany said. A vehicle had been waiting in the road for the soldiers to emerge as they came on duty.

“It was a BMW which accelerated very quickly the moment they came out.”

The barracks are reportedly some 200m (650 feet) from the local town hall.

France has been under a state of emergency since November 2015.
