Vehicle accelerates into Paris soldiers

A police officer was also injured by gunfire during the apprehension, the prosecutors' office said.

The street is normally guarded by posts that are removed when vehicles move in and out, so the driver must have known exactly when to strike, Veillant said.

The anti-terror troops are from Opération Sentinelle, set up in the aftermath of the French terror attacks.

French military forces have been assigned to patrol civilian sites ever since a series of terrorist attacks struck Paris in November 2015. The other official said the arrest took place on the A16 highway when the man was stopped as police hunted for the BMW suspected to be involved in the attack. "This vehicle was waiting for them", Balkany said.

"It's without doubt a deliberate act ..." He added that the vehicle used was a BMW.

Two of those injured are in a serious condition.

He spoke after visiting three of the injured soldiers along with Defence Minister Florence Parly.

The driver's motive is unclear, but officials said he deliberately aimed at the soldiers, and counter-terrorism authorities opened an investigation.

French police are searching for a driver who ploughed into soldiers patrolling an upmarket Paris suburb on Wednesday morning.

"We heard all the ambulances arriving..."

"I heard a huge crash which I thought was the sound of scaffolding being put up", Thierry Chappe, a resident in a building opposite the crime scene, told AFP.

France's BFM-TV earlier said citing sources close to the investigation that a man suspected of driving a auto into military servicemen had been arrested.

A man - described as the "chief suspect" in the case - has since been wounded during a gunfight with police, the Press Association reported.

All told, more than 230 people, mainly civilians, have been killed in attacks inspired by the militant group over the past two-and-a-half years, including two 2015 attacks in Paris and another in the coastal city of Nice in mid-2016. It was re-extended on several occasions.

In an interview with the weekly Journal du Dimanche published on Sunday, the interior minister, Gérard Collomb, said that the threat level in France was still high and that the authorities had thwarted seven terrorist plots since the beginning of the year. It is yet to be signed into law by President Emmanuel Macron, who initially introduced it to parliament.
