Four US tourists attacked with acid in Marseille, France
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.
USA stock market opens higher
Business software maker Oracle slumped 7.7 percent after issuing a disappointing forecast for its cloud computing business. US stocks are edging higher in midday trading on Wall Street, led by more gains for technology and industrial companies.
No other information on where the USA tourists were from was released. The city is just over three hours away from Paris by train.
Limited information on the attack has been provided to the media by the Marseille prosecutor's office; however, the incident is not being treated as a terrorist act.
