Acid attack at train station

Four U.S. tourists were attacked in France on Sunday when acid was thrown in their faces.

It's unclear what sparked the attack, which left two of the tourists with facial injuries and one with a possible eye injury.

The four women, in their early twenties, were traveling between Marseilles and Paris when they were attacked at 11am.

The spokeswoman did not release any further details about the victims or the suspect.

Moon also stressed the need to strengthen South Korea's military capabilities as well as those of the South Korea-US alliance. But despite pressure from the USA and its Asian allies, Kim doesn't appeared to be backing down.

'Fat patch' to provide targeted weight-loss trialed in the US
The new skin patch works differently in that it delivers most drugs directly to the fat tissue, which alleviates complications. Human trials haven't happened, though, and we're likely a long way from seeing these types of patches prescribed to patients.

No other information on where the USA tourists were from was released.

A 41-year-old woman with a history of psychiatric problems was arrested in connection with the incident, police said.

The attack is not thought to be terror-related. He told police he acted in the name of the Islamic State group.
