Acid attack at train station

Acid attack at train station

One has a possible eye injury, according to the prosecutor's office.

In April, French police say they thwarted an imminent "terror attack" and arrested two suspected radicals in Marseille just days before the first round of France's presidential election.

The attack with hydrochloric acid occurred on Sunday shortly after 11am, the La Provence newspaper reported, while the group of four was waiting for their transit to Paris.

Four young female United States tourists have been attacked with acid in Marseille's main railway station by a woman who has been arrested, prosecutors said.

She did not have any more details and spoke on condition of anonymity, per the French judicial system. No information is available at this time as to where in the US the tourists are from.

A 41-year-old woman with a history of psychiatric problems was arrested in connection with the incident, police said.
