American tourists attacked with acid in France train station, prosecutor says

17 September 2017

Four female American tourists had acid thrown in their faces by a woman at a French train station, Reuters reported Sunday.

The tourists, only identified at this point as females in their 20s, were assaulted by a 41-year-old woman while walking through Saint Charles train station, a transportation hub of the city of Marseille. She said there were no immediate indications that the attack was terror-related but added officials can't rule out terror links at such an early stage of the investigation. All four of the women were hospitalized.

An embassy spokesman said Sunday that the US consulate in the southern port city of Marseille is communicating with French officials about the attack at Marseille's main train station.
