French island of Corsica hit by attacks

A man was shot dead and several houses were bombed on the French island of Corsica, a vacation destination that is also home to criminal gangs and a simmering homegrown nationalist movement.


The wave of attacks Friday night comes after a series of killings this year that has outraged France and prompted to government to vow to stamp out the violence that has long been allowed to simmer on the island in the Mediterranean Sea known for its mountain vistas and rugged beaches. (AP)
