French Shooting Suspect Had Al-Qaeda Connections

A lone gunman who confessed to the shooting deaths of three Jewish children and a rabbi outside of a school last week died amid a hail of gunfire as he tried to scramble away from a gun battle with police outside his apartment. In addition to the school shootings, before his death, 23-year-old Mohamed Merah admitted to the killings of three French soldiers and informed police of his links to Al-Qaeda.

 

Merah recorded his attacks and the videos caused great controversy and speculation when an anonymous source mailed them to news broadcaster Al-Jazeera, which ultimately decided not to air the graphic tapes.
