An anti-terrorism investigation has been launched in Paris after a suspect attempted to drive a car into a crowd outside a Paris mosque, before being blocked by heroic drivers.
It is reported that other motorists lined up their cars to protect pedestrians after the 4x4 ploughed into a barrier and attempted to mount the kerb.
The attempted attack reportedly happened in the southern suburb of Creteil at around 6.20pm, and the 43-year-old suspect was arrested at his home 10 minutes later after police tracked his licence plate.
The man reportedly told police he wanted to avenge ISIS-inspired terror attacks.
