"The man was arrested", Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly told Europe 1 radio following the attack, Reuters reported. In August, a man rammed his auto into a group of soldiers near Paris, injuring six of them. The incident took place in Levallois-Perret commune, only 6 km from the capital.

Including the attacks today in Paris and Burgundy, France has already seen 10 terrorist incidents in 2017.
