PARIS — French police said a vehicle slammed into soldiers guarding a Paris suburb on Wednesday, injuring six of them, before getting away. Police described the incident as an “apparently deliberate act.”

Authorities were searching for the vehicle and driver after the incident in Levallois, northwest of Paris, according to a Paris police spokesman.

The vehicle appeared to clearly target the soldiers but the motive is unclear, the spokesman said. The official was not authorized to be publicly named according to police policy.
