Canadian 'opens fire' in Philippine court

Canadian 'opens fire' in Philippine court

A Canadian man has opened fire in a Philippine court, killing two people and wounding another, reports say.

The incident took place in Cebu city on Tuesday morning. Reports say the man was facing charges of malicious mischief filed by his neighbours.

A doctor and his lawyer were killed and a prosecutor wounded, local reports say.

The 65-year-old Canadian national was then shot - it is not clear whether by police or by himself.

One report said that the doctor shot dead was a complainant in the case.

The shooting comes amid debate in the South East Asian nation over gun control after a series of recent shootings, including one earlier this month that left seven people dead.
