Shots were fired on a Thalys high-speed train between Amsterdam and Paris and three people were injured, the Voix du Nord regional newspaper said on Friday.
"A man opened fire on this Thalys train between Amsterdam and Paris, one person was very seriously injured," Pierre Henry Brandet, the French interior ministry spokesman, said. "Talking about a terrorist motive would be premature at the moment."
The Telegraph, citing Voix du Nord, reports that a group of US Marines who happened to be aboard the train foiled the attack. The Marines heard the assailant loading a rifle in the bathroom and were able to subdue him after he wounded three passengers.

The Marines overpowered the suspect, who was placed under arrest when the train was rerouted to the town of Arras, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) north of Paris. One of the Marines was wounded, the Pentagon said.

Use it enough times in an article confirming or denying and even if it turns out to not be terrorist related, it will be terrorist related.
