U.S. Marines take down gunman firing AK-47 on French train

Le Parisien reports that a Briton and an American are “seriously” wounded.

A third person, the French actor Jean-Hugues Anglade, was also wounded and is said to have raised the alarm.

La Voix du Nord, a newspaper in the Calais region, said a man was arrested on suspicion of firing the weapon on a Thalys train near the northern town of Arras

Police say that have not ruled out terrorism as a possible motive and Bernard Cazeneuve, the French interior minister, has been summoned to the region.

The gunman, said to be of “North African origin,” is said to have been “taken down” by a group of US marines onboard the train.
