French police shoot down and wound man in motorway car chase

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Police in France have shot and wounded a man after a dramatic motorway car chase near Boulogne. The incident came after the same car was driven into a group of soldiers in a suburb of Paris, injuring six of them. There have been six previous attacks on French security forces so far this year and the government is planning to turn parts of the state of emergency there into permanent law.
