French Interior minister Manuel Valls gives a press conference on December 8, 2012 in Paris following the murder of nightclub boss Jeremy Mattioni, 29, who was shot dead in his car during the night. Since the start of the year there have been 20 murders on an island with a population of just over 300,000, giving it the highest homicide rate in Europe. Most of the slayings, police believe, have been linked to feuds originating in competition for control of protection rackets which target tourist businesses and the lucrative profits to be had from property development on an island that remains relatively unspoiled.
