One Dead, Two Injured in Corsica Airport Shooting: Sources

Port Calvi in Corsica, France

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – One man was killed and two people were injured on Tuesday morning in a shooting at an airport on the French island of Corsica, emergency service workers told AFP.

The shooting took place in a car park 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.

The motive for Tuesday’s killings remains unclear and police are hunting for a getaway car used by the shooter.
