Driver tries to ram soldiers in France

A man driving a car with fake licence plates tried to ram a group of soldiers out jogging in southeast France yesterday, security sources told AFP.

Speaking French and Arabic, the man first threatened a group of soldiers at around 8:00am in Varces-Allieres-et-Risset, near Grenoble, and then tried to run down another group returning to their barracks from a jog, the sources added. No one was hurt in the attempt.

The driver of the small Peugeot 208 hatchback, who was accompanied by a woman, sped off without causing any injuries. He was later reported caught in Grenoble. 

Prosecutors in Grenoble said the incident was not being treated as a terrorist attack for the moment and the motive remained unclear.
