2 shot dead in ‘gang­land’ at­tack

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Two men were cut down by au­to­matic ri­fles in broad day­light in Mar­seille, in what in­ves­ti­ga­tors said was prob­a­bly the lat­est round in a bloody gang­land war. The two men were trav­el­ling in sep­a­rate cars through the city mid-morn­ing when their way was blocked by a third ve­hi­cle, deputy pros­e­cu­tor An­dre Ribes said. Four men armed with Kalash­nikovs got out of the ve­hi­cle and opened fire, killing one man as he tried to run off and the other at the wheel of his car, Mr Ribes said. The two fa­tal­i­ties were young men in their 20s.
