Australian tourists arrested on graffiti tour of Europe's rail network

media Don't even think about it ... the two men were tagging trains across Europe SNCF Voyages

French police have arrested two Australian tourists alleged to be on a tagging tour of Europe's rail network.

Police in Paris took the pair, aged 36 and 28, in for questioning on Wednesday and hoped to bring them before a magistrate immediately.

They are believed to have caused about 8,000 euros-worth of damage by spraying graffiti on Paris métro and national rail network trains during their stay in France.

A search of their hotel room brought to light about 20 spraycans and digital photos of their handiwork.

Police say the two men were embarked on "inter-rail tourism" with the aim of spraying graffiti on trains across Europe.
