    France: National Liberation Front of Corsica (FNLC) separatists vow to attack France again

    [​IMG]

    Corsican separatists, who claimed responsibility for dozens of attacks last year, on Tuesday warned of fresh violence as France’s interior minister toured the crime-prone island.

    “We will take up arms again so that France recognizes our national rights,â€￾ the Corsican National Liberation Front (FNLC) said in a statement, denouncing Paris for supporting a centralized republic.

    But after vowing “zero toleranceâ€￾ for mafia groups, Interior Minister Manuel Valls said: “We will not let ourselves be browbeaten by threats.â€￾

    The FNLC, which was set up in 1976, and various other factions intent on self-rule have staged hundreds of attacks in Corsica. They have also been blamed for armed robberies and extortion through so-called revolutionary taxes.

    Maybe Simon Cowell should just launch a series called 'Terrorist Idol'.
