A motorist deliberately drove his car into two police motorcyclists on patrol in a Paris suburb, seriously injuring them, according to the police unions. The incident occurred Monday in Colombes, in the northwest suburbs of Paris. Video footage from social media and the daily Le Parisien website shows a motorcycle sandwiched between the crumpled hoods of a police car and a black BMW and the debris of a second motorcycle strewn on the road. “Two police bikers in serious condition after being deliberately struck Colombes by an individual who also struck a police car. Reflections with our colleagues, ”wrote the union Synergie-Officers on social networks. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner welcomed the response of the officers who gave first aid to their comrades on the scene. “My thoughts are with the two injured police officers who pledged to protect us,” Castaner wrote on Twitter. Police sources called the incident a deliberate act. Sources close to the investigation said the attacker targeted the officers to avenge the events in Palestine. Australian Associated Press
