Trouble on the trains

In addition to the story below of shootings on an Amsterdam/Paris express, passengers on a TGV bound for Paris from the south noticed smoke coming from one of the motors, which then caught fire. The train was halted in the middle of the countryside and the 800 passengers forced to evacuate to nearby fields (on a very hot day). Pompiers quickly extinguished the fire, but the line was closed for several hours, the passengers arriving in Paris many hours later.
