Four female Boston College students visiting France were attacked with acid at the Marseille-Saint Charles train station on Sunday, an incident authorities believe is unrelated to terror. She said there were no obvious indications that the woman's actions were terror-related.

According to reports, a 41-year-old has been arrested by police but as yet the motive of the attack has not been revealed, leaving investigators to determine whether it was a random act or not.

Boston College in MA said the female students were treated for burns at a Marseille hospital after they were sprayed in the face with acid on Sunday morning.

The spokeswoman for the Marseille prosecutor's office said the suspect did not make any extremist threats or declarations during the attack.

One of the two women was suffering from partial loss of vision.

French police say it is too early to determine if the incident was terrorism related. The two women reportedly sprayed with acid remain in hospital. Although this acid attack doesn't appear to be terror related, US tourists will no doubt see it as a reason to stay vigilant and aware while overseas.

The port city of Marseille, about 500 miles southeast of Paris, has seen at least two other attacks in recent months.

The attack took place a train station in Marseille.
