1 Dead as Van Rams French Bus Stops    08/21 06:12

   PARIS (AP) -- A van rammed into two bus stops in the French port city of 
Marseille on Monday, killing one person and injuring another, a police official 
said.

   The driver of the Renault Master van was arrested in a third location, the 
scenic Old Port area of France's second-largest city, David-Olivier Reverdy of 
the Alliance police union said.

   Police tweeted that an operation was underway and asked residents to avoid 
part of Old Port. BFM-TV said a witness noted the license plate of the van and 
was able to give it to police, allowing them to make the arrest.

   A man was injured at the first bus stop and the woman killed at the second, 
Reverdy said.  The two bus stops are about 5 kilometers (3 miles) apart in the 
northern part of Marseille.

   A motive was not immediately known.

   Reverdy said it was too early to blame the incident on terrorism, but "given 
the times" it could not be excluded as a possible motive. He said all 
possibilities were being studied.

   The incident comes just days after back-to-back van attacks in Barcelona and 
Spanish resort town of Cambrils killed 14 people.
