Three South Korean travelers were injured, two of them seriously, in a recent car attack in Melbourne, Australia, the foreign ministry here said Thursday.

In central Melbourne on Thursday, a vehicle rammed into pedestrians on a sidewalk, hurting 19 people. The driver, an Australian of Afghan descent, was quickly arrested, but the police said there was no evidence of a terrorist motive.

Those injured in the attack included three South Korean nationals who were traveling in the country during a short-term stay, the ministry said.

Two of them, both adult, were seriously injured in the lungs and pelvis and are currently undergoing treatment in an intensive care unit, according to the ministry. Another traveler, a boy, is also getting treatment after his leg was fractured.

The South Korean mission in Melbourne "immediately sent its staff to check on their condition and is currently providing the necessary support," the ministry said. (Yonhap)
