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

Four female U.S. tourists were attacked with acid inside a train station in the French city of Marseille, according to the Associated Press on Sunday. All four women - two of whom were directly hit in the face - are now receiving emergency medical attention at a nearby hospital.

French police arrested a 41-year-old woman in connection to the attack, according to the Associated Press, which cited an anonymous source in the local prosecutor's office.

More on this as it develops. She said there were no obvious indications that the woman's actions were terror-related, but added that officials could not be 100 percent sure about ruling out terror links at such an early stage of the investigation.
