Sixteen people were wounded, two seriously, along with the three killed in Friday’s shooting spree in southwest France by a man claiming allegiance to the Islamic State group, President Emmanuel Macron said.
A police officer who took the place of a female hostage is “fighting for his life”, Macron said in a televised address following the shootings in Carcassonne and Trebes, hailing the man as a hero.
