Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“A French police sniper has accidentally [sic] shot and injured two people during a speech by President Francois Hollande in western France. The shot was fired as the officer moved position on a roof about 100m (328ft) from a tent where Mr Hollande was speaking in the town of Villognon. The bullet went through the canvas of the tent, where drinks were being made. It passed through a waiter’s thigh and lodged in another person’s calf. The injuries were not life-threatening.” [editor’s note: There are two kinds of shots, “intentional” and “negligent.” Note the absence of “accidental” as a category – TLK] (02/28/17)
