Driver runs down three students in France

BFMTV said the man was known to police for previous non- terror crimes.

French Police said a man driving a auto outside a high school rammed into three students near Toulouse in southern France.

All three victims, who are thought to be Chinese and aged 22 and 23, have been taken to a hospital in Toulouse for treatment.

Couilleau said the driver claimed he acted deliberately and was arrested.

The driver attempted to drive off but was stopped by police and arrested straight away. "We offer all our support to them and their loved ones".

According to two police officials, the suspect was born in 1989 and known to suffer from a psychiatric disorder.

Paul, a communications student at the IGS campus told local media: "I was in class and I heard sirens".

Several post-18 colleges are located on the campus, including the International Institute of Trade and Development. "The school management did not explain what was going on".

France has been victim of a series of vehicle attacks by extremists inspired by the Islamic State group, but there was no immediate confirmation of the driver's identity or motive.

"At 15:54, a man driving a [Reanault] Clio vehicle presumably deliberately hit three people at a pedestrian crossing", Toulouse prosecutor Pierre-Yves Couilleau told BFMTV.
