ACID ATTACK HORROR: Four Americans injured in attack at train station

BREAKING: Four tourists have 'acid thrown in their faces' outside train station

The spokesman says US authorities in France are not immediately commenting further on what happened to protect the privacy of the American tourists, all women in their 20s.

In April, French police say they thwarted an imminent "terror attack" and arrested two suspected radicals in Marseille just days before the first round of France's presidential election.

The incident was not terror-related, French officials confirmed to Fox News. There was no immediate information on where the American tourists were from. She spoke on condition of anonymity, per the French judicial system.

Four young female USA tourists were attacked with acid in Marseille's main train station, an official said.

The tourists, only identified at this point as females in their 20s, were assaulted by a 41-year-old woman while walking through Saint Charles train station, a transportation hub of the city of Marseille.

The two other tourists were hit in the legs, according to French media, and have been taken to hospital for shock.

There was no immediate information on where the USA tourists were from. The tourists were on their way from the southern city to Paris.
