A man was arrested on Saturday after causing a scare at the Cannes Film Festival, where he attacked a TV studio with a gun loaded with blanks and a dummy grenade,police and witnesses said.
There were no casualties in the incident, and the TV channel, France's Canal +, resumed broadcasts after a break of several minutes.The suspected assailant fired twice in the air as he approached the temporary studio, set up on the Croisette seafront for special coverage of the film festival, they said.
"He said to a woman next to him 'if I were you, I wouldn't stick around here'," said Michel Denisot, the programme's presenter. "The police intervened. He had a hand grenade. There were no bullets in the gun and the grenade was a fake," he told viewers.
There was a brief moment of panic in the crowd around the seafront studio, but no-one was hurt.Marcel Authier, in charge of public security in the local Alpes-Maritimes department, told AFP that the arrested individual was a 42-year-old man.
"It's someone mentally unstable who was immediately arrested," Authier said.
