At least one person has been killed after a man plowed his car into two separate bus stops across the French city of Marseille. The unidentified driver in custody, according to police. This video from social media showing soldiers deployed after the 35-year old hit one bus stop at the height of rush hour, then driving across the city to hit another an hour later. Police are not treating it as a militant attack, with the driver known to them for minor crimes and psychological issues. But the incidents folded into the state of emergency France has been under since 2015, as Europe grapples with a wave of attacks motivated by Islamist insurgencies. Many of them have used vehicles as their weapons, most recently in attacks in Spain that killed 15 people last week.
