11 November 2017

Three people have been injured after a man ploughed a auto into a group of students near the south-western French city of Toulouse.

The three injured, one male and two female, are all at their early 20s, said the consulate.

French media said the driver, a 28-year-old man, was arrested several minutes later.

Two students at a French school have been badly injured in a vehicle attack, according to local media.

The driver has a history of mental illness, the interior ministry said in a statement.

Eurozone growth at fastest pace in 10 years
In its Autumn Forecast report, the Commission said Ireland's GDP will then slow to 3.9 percent in 2018 and 3.1 percent in 2019. Beyond 2017, the EC predicts eurozone and overall European Union growth of 2.1 percent in 2018 and 1.9 percent in 2019.

Two men aged 22 and 23, and a 23-year woman who was in a more serious condition, were hit on a pedestrian crossing outside IGS College just before 4pm local time (3pm United Kingdom time), the reports said. La Dépêche du Midi newspaper quoted him as telling police he had heard voices telling him to harm someone.

Police say the man is known for previous minor offences, notably drugs-related.

Toulouse prosecutor Pierre-Yves Couilleau told reporters that three students were injured on Friday when the motorist drove into the group, near a university campus in the city of Blagnac.

"The school management did not explain what was going on".
