Couilleau said the driver claimed he acted deliberately and was arrested.

French TV station BFMTV and a local newspaper website both said at least two students were run down in a deliberate vehicle attack at around 4 p.m. local time on Friday.

Media reports suggested that all three students are of Chinese origin.

The attack occurred in front of the Blagnac campus of the Institute for Social Research, an AFP journalist said.

Apple's next iPad could have Face ID and no home button
Apart from a design overhaul, the new iPad is expected to be powered by a more powerful SoC inside, possibly the A11X Bionic. However, Apple has confirmed they still see the iPad as the future for mainstream computing uses and business users.


The driver of the vehicle, a 28-year-old man who was known to police for committing minor offences, was arrested at the scene, the sources said. BBC quoted some unconfirmed reports that he may be suffering from major psychological problems. A 23-year-old is more seriously injured, a young man and another girl, aged 22 and 23, have lighter injuries.

They were taken by ambulance to Purpan Hospital.

The Mayor of Toulouse, Jean-Luc Moudenc took to Twitter and said: "Very shocked by the aggression against the students in Blagnac".

Initial information about the conditions of the injured - identified by authorities only as Chinese students - conflicted.
