4 female United States tourists attacked with acid in Marseille's main train station

BREAKING: Four tourists have 'acid thrown in their faces' outside train station

The incident is not believed to be terror-related. Two of the tourists received significant burns of the face and eyes.

French authorities are not investigating the acid attack on four American women in the southern city of Marseille as an act of terrorism for the time being.

The victims, both in their early 20s, received treatment in hospital, but were released later in Sunday. The health of the other vitriolage victim is not yet known, and the two other victims, who were physically unharmed, are being treated for shock. The prosecutor's office said the suspect also had a criminal record for violent theft, according to France 3.

The attack took place a train station in Marseille.

Malaysia school dorm fire leaves at least 23 dead
The school is named as Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah, as it is a tahfiz boarding school where students learn to remember the Quran. He said the living arrangements at the top floor were very cramped with double-decker beds placed too close to one another.

US authorities in France are not immediately commenting further on what happened to protect the privacy of the American tourists, embassy spokesman Alex Daniels said.

French media reports are describing the attacker using the word "déséquilibré", meaning a psychological imbalance.

In late August, the southern French port city of Marseille made global headlines when a van rammed into multiple bus stops, killing one person, in an act that authorities determined not to be terrorism.

In January, authorities said a 15-year-old Turkish Kurd attacked a Jewish teacher with a machete and claimed he did so on behalf of the Islamic State. The suspect has been arrested.
