There was no immediate information on where the USA tourists are from.

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. The city is just over three hours away from Paris by train.

The alleged attacker was arrested.

French reports say the incident is not being treated as terror-related and witnesses said no slogans were shouted during the attack.
