Beaches, bombs and gangsters — Corsica’s dilemma

In April 2011, police investigate the death of Marie-Jeanne Bozzi, in Grosseto, Corsica, France. Bozzi, who was shot by two men, was the sister of two major crime figures, one killed in his car and another sentenced to five years in prison for plotting to avenge his brother's death. Of the 85 gangland killings and attempted assassinations in Corsica in the past eight years, only one case has ended in conviction.
