A man who doused himself with wine and tried to set himself on fire on a train in France is being held by police on a potential terrorism charge, Independent reported.

The man, who identified himself as Syrian, waved a phone showing images of armed combatants, according to an unnamed official, who was not authorised to speak officially about the case. 

He was then tackled by a soldier and a police officer, who were both off duty at the time.

The official said the man became angry when a conductor on the train travelling from Lille to Montpellier asked him for a ticket for his journey.
