French school attack was "crazy act" by youth fascinated by guns - minister

PARIS (Reuters) - An attack at a high school in southeastern France on Thursday was "a crazy act by a fragile young man fascinated by firearms," Education Minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem said.

Vallaud-Belkacem was visiting the town of Grasse where the teenage student opened fire, injuring three people, including the headmaster, in an attack carried out after he had watched American-style mass shooting videos.
