Posted on 03/21/2012 9:42:17 AM PDT by Nachum
Police hunting a gunman suspected of killing seven people in southern France are laying siege to a flat in Toulouse.
The man, named as Mohammed Merah, 23, a Frenchman of Algerian origin, has said he belongs to al-Qaeda and acted to "avenge Palestinian children".
Police are negotiating with the man, who is still said to be armed but says he may give himself up this afternoon.
French Interior Minister Claude Gueant said the man had been tracked by French intelligence for "several years".
The brother of the suspect has been arrested in another part of Toulouse, with several other relatives also reported detained.

If Omoslem apologizes to this jihadi before 1pm EST, everybody owes me $20.
As I just commented on another thread, this guy in France is "suspected", he's "alleged".
Meanwhile, down in Florida, that guy Zimmerman who gets mentioned in the stories about Trayvon Martin is simply called "the shooter", "the killer" and "the murderer".
Zimmerman is apparently not one of the priviledged classes, I suppose.
Mohammed murdered 3 children at their school.
People work at schools.
Therefore, this was “workplace violence.”
Just like Fort Hood.
“Mohammed Merah, 23, a Frenchman of Algerian origin...”
Hollywood interprets that as “Neo-Nazi”, or “Far Right” Christian militiaman....
Just hours ago it was a dreaded white man/neonazi and now we are probably hours from this hitting the media memmory hole. they truly are an evil lot, how any conservative can respect them is beyond me
