Political tensions cloud tribute to slain Holocaust escapee

The Reuters newswire agency reports the remarks of a source close to the investigation, who said of the suspected attack: "A person tried to run down two soldiers from the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment in Varces, for unknown reasons".

The soldiers dived into a ditch to avoid the oncoming vehicle in Varces-Allières-et-Risset, near Grenoble. The 10 soldiers managed to get out of the way of the auto, which sped off after the attack.

A spokesman for the local prefecture said the driver's motives were not clear.

On March 23, Redouane Lakdim, a 26-year-old Moroccan national who reportedly obtained a French citizenship in 2015, hijacked a vehicle in the city of Carcassonne and then took several people hostage at a supermarket in Trebes.

Police sealed off the area and began a search for the driver, while the army stepped up security around the barracks, Brulon said.

A spokesman for the local prefecture said it was not clear whether the attack was deliberate or not.

On Thursday, the four victims of the attack in the medieval town of Carcassonne and nearby Trebes, including the heroic officer Arnaud Beltrame, will be laid to rest in the region.
