Murders and organised crime hit Corsica

The island has a history of violence and assassinations, with many murders still unsolved.

Tom Esslemont spoke to the daughter of prominent lawyer, Antoine Sollacaro, who was assassinated at a petrol station in Ajaccio on the west coast of the island last year.
