Six soldiers of the 25th infantry regiment were injured in the incident, two of them seriously. Ouest France reports the car involved in the incident waited outside a French army barracks in Levallois-Perret, a suburb of Paris, driving into the soldiers as they left the facility at approximately 0815 Wednesday morning. …

The car was driven away after it struck the soldiers, and police launched a manhunt. Six hours later, officers arrested a suspect who was driving north on the motorway in the direction of Calais …

The soldiers were members of Operation Sentinel, which has seen up to 100,000 French troops deployed in a domestic counter insurgency operation protecting key tourist spots as well as schools, mosques, and synagogues.
