A car has struck a group of soldiers in Paris, injuring six, two seriously, police say.
An urgent police operation is now under way to find the vehicle – reportedly a BMW – and driver involved in the incident in the north-western suburb of Levallois-Perret.
The local mayor, Patrick Balkany, said he had no doubt that the “disgusting” act was deliberate.
France has been under a state of emergency since November 2015.
Since then, more than 230 people have been killed in a wave of jihadist attacks.
They include a string of attacks on the heavily-armed security forces who now dot the streets of the capital.
Wednesday’s attack took place near the town hall in Levallois-Perret, Mr Balkany told local media.
