French couple killed

French couple killed - Two French citizens have been shot dead in Port-au-Prince at the weekend shortly after flying into the capital to adopt a child.  An official at the French embassy confirmed that a French couple had been killed, without giving further details of the exact circumstances of their deaths.

According to two other sources, however, the couple were from the Ardeche region of southeastern France and had arrived in the Caribbean country to adopt a child. One of the sources said they were killed in an armed robbery that turned deadly. 

A spokeswoman for the Ardeche department confirmed to AFP that the couple, from the town of Saint-Martin-d'Ardeche, had been given a green light last year to adopt their first child.
