At least three people were killed and 11 wounded in a shooting in the Christmas market in the city of Strasbourg, France, on Tuesday evening.
According to reports, one of the wounded victims is a tourist who was shot in the stomach.
French interior minister Christophe Castaner confirmed on Tuesday night that the death toll in the shooting stands at three, and added that the manhunt for the shooter continues.

The assailant is said to be armed and still at large. He has reportedly been identified by French police.
