French news channel BFMTV reported earlier that a auto "deliberately" rammed into a group of students in front a business school in Balgnac, near Toulouse, on Friday, injuring three students.

The suspect, a 28-year-old known to the police for minor offenses, was arrested at the scene and taken for questioning.

BFM television reports that the three people hurt are Chinese students and none of their injuries are considered life-threatening.

According to local media reports all three students hit by the auto were Chinese.

"The individual arrested immediately after the event said he had been planning this act for a month".

The driver has a history of mental illness, the interior ministry said in a statement. They were all transported to the hospital.

Toulouse Prosecutor Pierre-Yves Couilleau said Friday evening that two students remained hospitalized and one had left the hospital.

Police have confirmed the incident was a "deliberate attack" and that the driver was not on a security watch list, according to local media.

Several post-18 colleges are located on the campus, including the International Institute of Trade and Development.
