    The French prime minister has said the murder of a leading Corsican businessman was the work of the mafia.

    Jacques Nacer was shot dead in his own shop in the centre of Ajaccio.

    The French Interior Minister Manuel Valls and the Minister of Justice Christiane Toubira met police investigating the killing, which is this year's 17th murder on the island linked to criminal gangs.
