BASTIA, France: One man was killed and two people were injured on Tuesday in a shooting at an airport on the French island of Corsica, emergency service workers told Agence France-Presse.
The shooting took place near the entrance of Bastia airport in the north of the Mediterranean island, leaving one man dead with a gunshot to the head, another with several bullet wounds and a third with minor injuries.
Corsica was once plagued by separatist violence, but the main militant group seeking independence for Corsicans declared a ceasefire in 2014.
About a dozen assassinations of public figures have taken place on the island in the last 20 years, while murders linked to gang violence and drug trafficking have also claimed lives. AFP
