Paris attack: Man shot in hunt for BMW driver who mowed down six French soldiers


French police shot and arrested a suspect in the ramming of six soldiers near Paris on Wednesday after a dramatic car chase.

Le Parisien newspaper named the driver in the suspected terror incident as Hamou B, a 37-year-old from Sartrouville in the north western suburbs of Paris.

At least 300 police were mobilised in the manhunt, which ended on a motorway in northern France, after what police said was a “complex and dangerous intervention”.

The arrest, made on the A16 motorway in the town of Marquise, came after a driver of a BMW mowed down six French soldiers in Levallois-Perret, an upmarket suburb to the northwest of Paris. France’s counter terror unit took over the case late in the morning.
