A man has been arrested after driving a car into a crowd outside a mosque in the Créteil neighbourhood, south-east of Paris, France.


The vehicle struck barriers put in place to protect worshipers and pedestrians outside the mosque in the suburb of Paris, police said in a statement.


A police statement said the suspect “repeatedly struck the blocks and barriers placed to protect the mosque”.


A source quoted in Le Parisien claimed the suspect, reportedly of Armenian origin, wanted to “avenge the Bataclan and Champs-Elysees” attacks, the UK Independent reports.


No casualty was recorded from the incident which occurred on Thursday evening, June 29.
