Auto hits soldiers outside Paris, at least six injured

Police and soldiers secure the scene where French soliders were hit and injured by a vehicle in the western Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret

A man has been shot and arrested in relation to Wednesday morning's assault when anti-terror soldiers in the northwestern suburbs of Paris were rammed into by a auto, leaving six injured.

A major police operation is underway as the search for the vehicle widens.

Terror struck again in Paris this morning as a driver who is still at large intentionally veered a vehicle into a crowd of soldiers in Saint-Mande, a Paris suburb, Fox News reports.

"I find this shameful", Levallois-Perret Mayor Patrick Balkany said, calling the incident an "intolerable aggression".

The incident happened in the north-western suburb of Levallois-Perret at about 8am local time (4pm AEST).

Levallois-Perret is about 3 miles from city center landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Elysee Presidential Palace.

It is the latest of several attacks targeting security forces guarding France over the past year.

The stand-off emerged after Chinese troops were stopped by the Indian Army from constructing roads along the Doklam border. She underlined that China had been contributing to India's economic growth and had huge stakes in the country.

Balkany claimed that the BMW "had prepositioned itself in the cal-de-sack (where the barracks located) and barrelled into them", adding that "the auto had accelerated very quickly".

Three of the soldiers suffered slight injuries while three were more seriously injured - but their lives are not in danger, according to the Defence Ministry.

"The vehicle did not stop", Balkany said. "It hurtled at them ... it accelerated rapidly".

In February, a man armed with a machete attacked four soldiers on patrol at Paris's Louvre Museum, while in April another extremist shot and killed a policeman on the Champs-Elysees, the French capital's most famous boulevard. Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed that the person arrested is the same man who carried out the attack.

The Paris prosecutor's office also confirmed the arrest to ABC News, saying the man was driving the auto authorities were searching for on the A16 highway north of Paris.

Nadia LeProhon, a witness, told The Associated Press she heard a loud crash outside her building and rushed outside to see two soldiers on the ground.

French media reported that the six injured soldiers were taking part in Operation Sentinelle, which involves widespread army foot patrols as a deterrent measure after a series of terrorist attacks since early 2015. The vehicle was reportedly riddled with bullet holes on the site of the arrest. "The ongoing probe will determine his motives and the circumstances in which he acted", Parly said.
