The acid was thought to be in a spray canister sold in DIY shops for cleaning purposes.

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.

A 48-year-old woman was arrested and detained by the police. The city is just over three hours away from Paris by train.

All four of the tourists are in their 20s.

After almost four months of fighting, Philippine government troops have retaken a historic mosque along with two other major strongholds of ISIL-linked militants in the war-torn Marawi City.

The two other tourists were hit in the legs, according to French media, and have been taken to hospital for shock.

Two of the victims suffered injuries in the face and one of them has possible eye damage, a spokeswoman for the Marseille prosecutor's office told The Associated Press.

She did not have any more details and spoke on condition of anonymity, per the French judicial system. No information is available at this time as to where in the US the tourists are from.

Marseille is a port city in southern France that is closer to Barcelona than Paris.
