Driver Plows Into Soldiers In Paris-

French police are looking for the driver who ran into a group of soldiers as they patrolled a Paris suburb earlier today.  The anti-terror patrol soldiers were standing by a military vehicle when a BMW plowed into them. Six were hurt, two seriously. Witnesses say it appeared that the driver was waiting for the soldiers to come out of their barracks. When they did, the car accelerated into the troops.

The soldiers were heading out on patrol in the suburb northwest of Paris, working under the state of emergency that's been in place since terrorist attacks in November of 2015. All the soldiers who were injured are expected to survive.

France is battling homegrown extremism with 15,000 suspected radical Islamists on the watchlists of French authorities and about 4,000 of those considered to be at high risk of committing an attack.Source: Newsweek
