Six people, including four children, were seriously injured in an indiscriminate armed riot in Annecy, France, a representative tourist destination along the Alps.
Among those who were injured were three babies under the age of three, two of them in a serious condition.
Reporter Lee Man-soo reports.
Armed police have been deployed throughout Annecy, a resort town in southeastern France near the Alps.
The strict vigilance is due to the indiscriminate romance of arms that has just taken place.
A man wandered around the playground near Lake Annecy, which was crowded with tourists, and was wearing a weapon.
Even a baby in a stroller became a target for the crime.

The peaceful tourist destination soon turned into chaos, and six people, including four children, were injured.
Among those injured, one was 22 months old, two were two years old and one was just three years old.
Two of these are seriously injured.
The suspect arrested by the police was identified as a 31-year-old man of Syrian nationality.
The local media reported that the man entered Sweden in 2013, was recognized as a refugee, and was married with one child.
It is known that he applied for asylum in France in November last year.
Investigators looking into the motive for the crime said there were no terrorism charges yet.

France was shocked by the terrible crime that shook the peaceful little town.

President Macron posted on social media that it was a completely cowardly attack, and the House of Representatives held a moment of silence for the victims.
