Bayonne mosque shooter had far-right connections: police source

PARIS (Reuters) - The 84-year old man who fired shots and hurt two people at the Bayonne mosque in southern France on Monday had far-right connections, according to a police source.

A separate source, familiar with the situation, said the shooter had been a candidate for Marine Le Pen’s National Rally party back in 2015.
