A man has been detained for dousing himself with wine and subsequently attempting to set himself on fire while onboard a train in France. According to reports, the man became angry after a conductor asked to see his ticket.
The suspect, who is being held on potential terrorism charges, has been identified as a Syrian, and was quickly tackled by an off-duty soldier and police officer, before being handed over to local police.
The incident took place onboard a train travelling to Montpellier from the northern city of Lille on Wednesday, which marked the three-year anniversary of the devasting Bataclan concert terror attack.
