FRANCE ON LOCKDOWN: 'Car ploughs into soldiers outside barracks' - huge manhunt launched


A driver attempted to run over soldiers as they were jogging in southern France.

The soldiers, who belong to the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment, avoided the vehicle in Varces-Allières-et-Risset near the city of Grenoble.

French Army spokesman Colonel Benoît Brulon said the man had "verbally threatened" the troops as they left their barracks, before trying to ram them as they returned.

"The soldiers managed to get up onto the pavement without being hit", Brulon said.

Quoted by the newspaper, the public prosecutor in Grenoble, Jean-Yves Coquillat, said that "we must remain cautious regarding the motives of the attacker".

Last week, one Radouane Lakdim killed a passenger in a vehicle and then fired at the local policemen out for the jog, injuring one.

The official said the reason for the driver's actions was unknown and it is unclear if the military was being targeted specifically.




The incident, feared to be another Islamist attack, came as ministers attended the funerals in southern France of a butcher, a wine-maker and supermarket shopper shot dead by a terrorist last week.

A man attempted to ram his auto into French military from the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment, who have been jogging in France's Varces-Allières-et-Risset, Isère this morning, BFMTV reported.

Noting that Knoll's son, Daniel, had said he wanted to encourage national unity and that everyone "without exception" was welcome at the march, Le Pen said of the insults: "I find the behaviour here undignified toward the (grieving) family".

France has been on high alert after an ISIS supporter went on a rampage in southwestern France last Friday, killing four people in the first militant since President Emmanuel Macron lifted a two-year state of emergency.

All hostages were later released apart from one woman. It was then when Lt Col Arnaud Beltrame swapped himself for the hostage and was killed.

The 25-year-old was eventually killed in a hail of bullets after anti-terror cops stormed the Super U store.
