A bus carrying Czech tourists has come under gun fire, injuring six passengers, as it travelled through south-eastern France.

Alex Perrin, prosecutor of Valence, said the bus was hit on Friday night as it travelled along the A7 on its way home from a trip to Spain.

Six of the passengers, which included school children, were slightly injured after being hit by flying glass and one person was seriously hurt.

Mr Perrin told BFM-TV that a first shot hit the front window and a second hit the rear window, shattering both.

There have been no arrests or claims of responsibility.

Mr Perrin said "one could think that this bus ... was no more a target than any other."
