Gendarme killed by 'accidental' gunfire in New Caledonia


 , Updated 17:27, 16-May-2024

A gendarme was killed on Thursday in France's riot-struck Pacific territory of New Caledonia by an "accidental gunshot," Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin told AFP.

"It was not a hostile shot" that killed the officer, added a source informed about the incident, which brings to five the number of deaths in unrest since Monday, including two gendarmes.
