Driver tries to ram group of French soldiers

A driver is on the run after trying to ram a car into a group of soldiers out jogging near their barracks in southeast France.

The soldiers dived into a ditch to avoid the oncoming vehicle in Varces-Allieres-et-Risset, near Grenoble.

Gendarmerie have sent out patrols nearby to check number plates.

The attack follows a hostage-taking in the southwest of France on 23 March, in which four people were killed.

A memorial service was held on Wednesday for Lt Col Arnaud Beltrame, a police officer killed by Redouane Lakdim in the attack in the town of Trèbes, near Carcassonne.

He and the three other victims will be laid to rest on Thursday.
