It has been reported that a motorist has aimed his car at worshippers leaving a mosque in a suspected terror attack.

Police in Paris said that the man’s motives weren’t yet clear and that his car didn’t hit anyone.

The mosque is situated in Créteil, Paris.

However, press in the French capital have said that the motorist ‘wanted vengeance.’

Le Parisien reports that he said he wanted to “avenge the Bataclan and the Champs-Elysees”.

The Bataclan Theatre is the concert hall where 90 people were killed by ISIS attackers in 2015.

In a statement about today’s crash, cops said the car struck security fences at the mosque “on several occasions”.

Reports suggest the man was of Armenian origin, and that he may have been under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

Police spokesman Michel Delpuech pledged that every effort would be made to determine the driver’s motivation.
