UPDATE: French woman involved in Marseille metro incident - UK Ambassador to France
British Ambassador to France Julian King says that French authorities have reported that a French woman, not an England football fan, was involved in a metro incident in Marseille in southern France on Saturday evening.
"French authorities [are] clarifying that incident at metro involved a French woman who has been hospitalized," he tweeted in the early hours of Sunday, June 12, while commenting on social media reports that an England football fan allegedly died in a metro incident.

Earlier, social media users, who later were identified as fake journalist accounts, tweeted that an England fan had died in Marseille after he had reportedly been pushed in front of a train, and UEFA might cancel the Euro 2016 events for safety fears.
