Apparently he died after jumping from a window, whether he was already mortally wounded or was simply escaping from the Police will be subject to investigation.

French officials said today that the gunman suspected of killing seven people in southern France died after being shot in the head by a police sniper following a 32-hour siege

Sounds like it might not have been the fall that killed him.

The same murderer also killed two french paras & another soldier with clean headshots, in previous incidents. Since the paras were of North-african origin and the soldier from La Reunion, these horrible crimes should calm some of the more xenophobic announcements of France's soon-to-be-ex president. The police are looking for two ex-paras who were thrown out of the army for neonazi behaviour.

You what? Is this a joke? This criminal looks like he's a french Breivik. The killer was big, white and heavily tattooed.
Oh dear. One of the reasons I prefer to wait for facts instead of emotion built CNN style minute by minute updates.

Fair comment. I was totally, embarassingly wrong... Hopefully my reaction will be more nuanced next time...

When the OP first posted the link, it was thought there might be a connection with the shooting of the 3 soldiers but i was not confirmed at the time

Which is bad as they wanted to interrogate the man. But the policemen there had to prevent him from fleeing and/or from wounding or even klling one of them.

From what gradually becomes known of the man, he was a contradictory person if there ever was one.

Wrong you were, but why ? Because the man first killed three soldiers of Maghreb origin, he apparently regarded as traitors (this will remain unclear as he did not say anything about it) and then went on to attack that Jewish school.

Re: A gunman has shot dead a teacher and three children at a jewish school in Toulous

The french authorities have a lot to answer for:
How did he get so many weapons, why didn't the police pick him up immediately (he was under surveillance) - instead of waiting for him to call a news service to brag, why did they let him stay in his apartment for 32 hours, then braking in - only to be surprised by him, then shoot him in the head ?

His brother is proud of him , isn't that sweet ?

Too bad he died, as otherwise he might be able to explain why he had Israeli stamps on his travel document,

I am afraid you have no chance to find those answers, the French "authorities"are busy with some gypsy beggars.

it's still not clear whether he visited Israel.

What is clear is that France has a serious problem with Islamist terrorists.

Re: A gunman has shot dead a teacher and three children at a jewish school in Toulous

Seems that he was indeed there.

Quote:
According to the Shin Bet, Merah entered Israel after crossing the Allenby Bridge from Jordan in September 2010. He was investigated by the Shin Bet. The investigation did not bring up any suspicious information, and he was allowed to enter the country.

Security sources told Haaretz that Merah visited Israel before his stay in Afghanistan or Pakistan, thus there was no information that could indicate whether or not he constituted a security threat.

A huge public toilet should be built on his grave.

He was buried in Toulouse to the shouts "Allah Hu Akbar" - Yet another Islamist terrorist (even though the BBC and others insist on calling him a "gunman").

Other 19 suspects were arrested this morning (probably took most of the French army to do it)
