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

Four US tourists attacked with acid outside train station in France

Two of them - aged 20 and 21- were reportedly hit in the face and rushed to hospital with burns, while the attacker was arrested by police.

Two female American tourists suffered facial injuries in an acid attack that left two others nursing burns, outside a train station in Marseille.

The attack took place outside Saint-Charles station shortly after 11am on Sunday morning.

The tourists - who are all in their 20s - were hospitalized, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor told the Associated Press.

She did not have any more details and spoke on condition of anonymity, per the French judicial system.

In previous incidents in Marseille, a driver deliberately rammed into two bus stops last month, killing a woman, but officials said it wasn't terror-related.

Two of the USA women suffered facial injuries in the attack, police said.
