MARSEILLE, France, April 5, 2006 (AFP) - Three men including a suspected drugs kingpin were killed in a shoot-out at a cafe in the Mediterranean port of Marseille in what police said Wednesday appeared to be a settling of accounts in the criminal underworld.

A gang of around 10 heavily-armed men opened fire late Tuesday in the Les Marronniers brasserie, killing Farid Berrhama and two others.

Police said that Berrhama was a well-known figure in the Marseille crime scene, and was facing charges for international drug-running. The other men were believed to be his henchmen.
