The soldiers, who belong to the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment, avoided the vehicle in Varces-Allières-et-Risset near the city of Grenoble.

A man attempted to ram his auto into French military from the 93rd Mountain Artillery Regiment, who have been jogging in France's Varces-Allières-et-Risset, Isère this morning, BFMTV reported.

The 10 soldiers managed to get out of the way of the vehicle, which sped off after the attack.

A vegan in France who posted a Facebook message offering "zero sympathy" for a butcher killed by an Islamist militant during an attack last week has been arrested and could face prison for the remarks, police and prosecutors said.

Police were frantically searching for the driver who accelerated to flee the spot after the failed attempt.

The attack follows a hostage-taking in the southwest of France on 23 March, in which four people were killed.

"You fell under the bullets of terrorism and took with you the insouciance of a little town in Occitanie where no one expected to ever experience such happenings", Trebes Mayor Eric Menassi told mourners at the gathering attended by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.

The vegan lives in Saint Gaudens, a village not far from the Pyrenees mountains and the town of Trebes, hit by last week's attack.

Lakdim was shot dead by police.

That officer, Arnaud Beltrame, was remembered in a national ceremony in Paris on Wednesday.

His 18-year-old girlfriend, a radicalised Muslim convert, was charged with being part of a terrorist conspiracy.

Over 240 people have been killed in a series of jihadist attacks around France over the past three years, and the security forces have been targeted on several occasions.
