A driver 'suffering from acute schizophrenia' ploughed into a group of Chinese students leaving a college in the suburb of Blagnac, near Toulouse, on Friday.
Three people were injured, two gravely, in the smash at the exit of Saint-Exupéry high school, in south-west France, before being taken to the nearby Purpan Hospital.
The driver, 28, who deliberately committed the attack, is known to police but was not on a security watch list. While being arrested he admitted to hearing voices telling him to hurt someone.
The three victims are Chinese students - a 22-year-old man and two 23-year-old women.
This college campus comprises of several postgraduate courses including journalism, computer science, real estate and business.
