The women were sprayed with acid by a 41-year-old woman who has been detained by police, according to the Marseille prosecutor's office.

A woman threw acid at four female American tourists at a train station in the French city of Marseille on Sunday, an attack police said they did not believe was terrorism-related.

The four American women, said to be in their 20s, were in the Gare de Marseille-Saint-Charles train station when the acid attack happened, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. All four of the women were hospitalized.
