Six people have been injured when a bus carrying tourists came under fire on a highway in southeastern France, a local prosecutor said.

The bus was carrying 75 Czech tourists, including a group of children who were on a school trip, and was en route from Spain to the Czech Republic. The incident happened not far from the southeast French town of Saulce-sur-Rhone, when the bus was roughly halfway between Lyon and Marseille, local media report.

The gunman who targeted the bus apparently took up position on a bridge over the A7 motorway, along which the bus was traveling. An initial investigation revealed that the shooter used a hunting rifle, as one bullet was found inside the bus.

"An initial shot smashed the front windscreen and a second exploded the rear window of the vehicle a few seconds later," local prosecutor Alex Perrin told AFP.



Why would anyone just play whackamole and start shooting at a random bus for no reason?

I guess we'll find out if it was a ticked off frenchman who thought he was shooting up a busload of immigrants or an islamist immigrant celebrating Ramadumb :)
