A driver has ploughed into a group of students near the south-western French city of Toulouse, injuring three.
Two of the injured are said to be in a serious condition. All three are thought to be of Chinese origin.
The incident occurred outside a college in the suburb of Blagnac.
French media quoted police as saying the incident was deliberate but the driver was not on a security watch list.

Could also be a nationalist background. Blagnac is home to Toulouse Blagnac International airport. Victims are Chinese. France sold a 49% stake of the airport to a Chinese company in December 2014.
The French government sparked anger on Friday by announcing it was selling half of the Toulouse-Blagnac airport in southwest France, the home of aircraft maker Airbus, to a Chinese-led consortium
Nevertheless the controversial move has sparked anger in some quarters.
French Gaullist and sovereignist MP Nicolas Dupont-Aignan described the sale as treason.
"I am ashamed of this minister who, in order to obey Brussels commissioners, is now selling our country. It is completely absurd, it is completely uneconomical, because it is the airport for Airbus," the chairman of the movement "Debout La France" (Stand-up France) told i-Tele on Friday.
"It is high treason, it means that people who lead us no longer defend the French" the MP said, adding that he has fears of espionage on the "principal centre of the aviation industry.
He wasn't the only politician to be furious at the government's move.
