Suspect Arrested in Paris Car Attack That Injured 6 Soldiers

Authorities said they shot and arrested a suspect in Wednesday's vehicle attack on a group of French military soldiers in Paris.

Police are searching for a BMW vehicle that rammed into a group of soldiers in the northwestern Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret.

Earlier, six soldiers were wounded after a auto was driven at them near their base in Levallois-Perret.

Police officials said that they took the man into custody on a motorway after shooting him.

The area, quieter than normal in peak summer holiday season, was cordoned off after the incident, which happened at around 8:00 a.m. local time, police said.

"Incident in Levallois Perret: police operation underway".

"It's an odious act of aggression", he told BFM-TV. "The BMW accelerated very quickly the moment they came out".

At least three of the six French soldiers who were hit were seriously injured, but the injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, France's Defense Ministry said.

"The vehicle did not stop", Balkany said.

Balkany told BFMTV that the vehicle was "pre-positioned" in a small alleyway, waiting for troops from the 35th Infantry Regiment to come out of the building.

Two months earlier, a policeman was shot dead on the Champs Elysees, while in February, a man with a machete attacked four soldiers near the Louvre Museum.

Most were released. But in one case, police stopped a auto on the A16 highway and arrested the driver and were verifying his possible links to the attack, according to two police officials.

"I heard a loud sound, shouts". He later told police he wanted to attack a soldier.

Also, the Paris' prosecutor's office has said it aims at pursuing the perpetrators on charges of "attempted murder of security forces in connection with a terrorist enterprise". The driver was killed but the country's interior minister described the attack on the police as terror-related.
