Police have arrested a man in Grenoble after a group of soldiers were nearly hit by a auto while jogging near their barracks in south-eastern France.
The soldiers, who belong to the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment, avoided the vehicle in Varces-Allières-et-Risset near the city of Grenoble.
"There were a good 10 of them jogging outside their barracks".
It was not immediately clear what has been the reason behind the incident, which took place near a military barrack just days after the terrorist attack in southern France. A spokesman for the army's land regiments in the region said soldiers had told police the driver had shouted abuse in Arabic as he first passed them.
Four months later, a man rammed his auto into a group of soldiers on anti-terror patrol in the western Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret, injuring six people.
"We don't know if it was an involuntary action, an act to try to scare the soldiers, or a deliberate gesture", a government official told Reuters.
Radouane Lakdim, a Moroccan-born French national, fired at a group of policemen returning from a jog before storming the Super U store and shooting dead two people.
A military official told the AP that no one was injured.
But while Crif was adamant about the far-right and far-left staying away, Mireille Knoll's son Daniel said the rally should be open to everyone. The incident comes as victims of a hostage-taking at a supermarket in the south-western town of Trèbes are being buried.
After a stand-off lasting several hours, Lakdim shot Beltrame.
President of the French far-right Front National Marine Le Pen walks with others in Paris on March 28, 2018, during a silent march in memory of Mireille Knoll, the 85-year-old Jewish woman murdered in her home in what police believe was an anti-Semitic attack.
