4 women attacked in France identified as Boston College students

A woman with "deep psychological problems" was in custody in the French city of Marseille Sunday after spraying four American tourists with acid and burning two in the face.

The four women, in their early twenties, were traveling between Marseilles and Paris when they were attacked at 11am.

"It appears that the students are fine, considering the circumstances, though they may require additional treatment for burns", said Nick Gozik, director of BC's Office of International Programs. The other two tourists involved are said to be suffering from shock.

The statement said that Boston College officials are in touch with the students and their parents.

According to reports, a 41-year-old man was arrested by police and the two tourists were taken to hospital.

The attack took place a train station in Marseille.

The spokeswoman for the Marseille prosecutor's office says the suspect who attacked four American women with acid in the Marseille train station did not yell any out any terror-linked threats. She spoke on condition of anonymity, per the French judicial system. After being arrested, she allegedly told the police: "I was a fool".

At this time, no details are known regarding the names of the victims or the suspect, nor has the prosecutor's office revealed from where in the USA these tourists hail.
