A police hunt is underway after a vehicle rammed into soldiers in a Paris suburb according to reports.

Sky News, citing French media, reported that several people are injured after soldiers were hit in the Levallois-Perret.

Police are searching for a vehicle.

The police authority has said six soldiers are injured following the incident.

Four of those have "light injuries" while two are seriously injured.

Patrick Balkany, the local mayor for the western Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret, said he had "no doubt" that the incident was a deliberate act.

"Without any doubt, it was a deliberate act," Balkany told BFM TV.

"It's an odious act of aggression," Balkany also said, adding that the car in question was a BMW.

Paris police tweeted: "Police intervention is underway. Search underway for vehicle."
