A 78-year-old man has killed himself inside the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris in the French capital, police say, causing its evacuation.

The man pulled out a shot-gun and shot himself through the mouth beside the main altar shortly after 16:00 (14:00 GMT).

He has been named as Dominique Venner, an award-winning far-right historian.

Mr Venner had recently been involved in the campaign against the government's decision to legalise gay marriage.

On Saturday, President Francois Hollande signed the bill into law.

Police said Mr Venner had made no statement before killing himself, although a note was found next to his body. They did not disclose its contents.

Earlier on Tuesday, he had written on his blog a damning critique of the same-sex marriage bill.

"New spectacular and symbolic actions are needed to wake up the sleep walkers and shake the anaesthetised consciousness," he wrote.

Essentially a far right-wing nut blows his head off because the gays can get married.


Completely reasonable reaction.

Some people cant understand why men love men and women love women. I don't personally care, and wish gay marriage was legal everywhere. Its not right for someone to tell someone else they can or cant be happy, and if they are happy with the partners they choose, who the hell are we to tell them its wrong?

Well, a racist, homophobic, islamophobic, far-right extremist nut tries (and honestly fails) to make a martyr out of himself by using the same code and methods of the people he denounced.

It is both ironic and pathetic at the same time.
