Car Attempts to Ram Into French Military, Suspect Escapes

Car Attempts to Ram Into French Military, Suspect Escapes

A manhunt is under way in eastern France after a vehicle tried to drive into a group of soldiers this morning.

"A person tried to run down two soldiers from the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment in Varces, for unknown reasons", a source close to the investigation said on Thursday.

"There were a good 10 of them jogging outside their barracks".

He said it came as far-left student protesters were blocking parts of the campus in a protest movement, but said it is unclear who was behind the incident. Gendarmerie have cordoned off the area and begun searching for the man, while the military has reinforced security around the barracks, Mr Brulon said.

A spokesman for the local prefecture said: "We don't know if it was an involuntary action, an act to try to scare the soldiers, or a deliberate gesture".

French President Emmanuel Macron decried the "barbaric" views that fueled an Islamic extremist's supermarket hostage-taking last week as well as Knoll's killing.




Radouane Lakdim, a Moroccan-born French national, fired at a group of policemen returning from a jog before storming the Super U store and shooting dead two people. No one was injured in the attempted attack, said the same source, adding that the police is looking for the assailant who is on the run.

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".

On March 23, Redouane Lakdim, a 26-year-old Moroccan national who reportedly obtained a French citizenship in 2015, hijacked a vehicle in the city of Carcassonne and then took several people hostage at a supermarket in Trebes.

After a stand-off lasting several hours, Lakdim shot Beltrame.

Over 240 people have been killed in a series of jihadist attacks around France over the past three years, and the security forces have been targeted on several occasions.
