Four US tourists attacked with acid in Marseille, France

BREAKING: Four tourists have 'acid thrown in their faces' outside train station

The attack that occurred around 11 a.m. local time Sunday morning at the Saint-Charles train station in Marseille was not terror-related, Marseille police said. All four have been hospitalized, two of them for shock, and a 41-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of throwing the acid. The spokeswoman spoke on condition of anonymity, per the French judicial system, in a phone call to The Associated Press.

In previous incidents in Marseille, a driver deliberately rammed into two bus stops last month, killing a woman, but officials said it wasn't terror-related.
