Shooting at Quebec election event

A gunman has opened fire at a separatist Parti Quebecois election victory rally in the Canadian province of Quebec, killing one man.

The shooting followed preliminary results indicating the party was on course to form a minority government after nine years in opposition.

PQ leader Pauline Marois was giving a victory speech in Montreal when shots were heard at the back of the hall.

As the suspect was led away, firefighters were called to put out a fire that had been lit outside the building.

The BBC's Lee Carter said there was a lot of confusion when the shooting took place.
