TOULOUSE, France (AP) - Three explosions were heard near an apartment building in southwest France where a suspected gunman who boasted of shooting seven victims in an al-Qaida-linked terror spree is holed up.
Orange flashes lit up the night sky with each blast near the Toulouse apartment building where police have been surrounding 24-year-old suspect, Mohamed Merah, since a pre-dawn effort to arrest him went awry.

The entire area was evacuated in the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday (France time). . .it’s about 21 hours later now.
300 cops.... 20 hour standoff.... one guy....
Has France surrendered yet??
Earlier on the media was implying the shooter was a Nazi-sympathizer.
The suspect on the loose, now hiding in the loo in Toulouse, is about to lose!
300 cops, 20 hour standoff....
How long will the French hold out before they surrender?

[Not much is going on. A few vehicle lights, a couple of police standing down the roadway.]
Thanks. I always wondered how come ambush didn’t happen more often in situations like this.
Ya' know, I'm starting to lose faith in all this "religion of peace" talk that is so prominent these days.
Frankly, I'm thinking it's BS.
“the senior U.S. military official told the CNN contributor Fran Townsend that the French shooting suspect was stopped by Afghan forces who tried to turn him over to the U.S. military. The U.S. directed them to hand Merah to French forces since he was a citizen of their country.”
IOW, the obama/Sgt. Schultz smart power doctrine: “I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!”
As I understand it, during the standoff today, the shooter's brother was rounded up, and we may not know how many more. The shooter did indicate that this was just the start of something bigger, which may just be posturing, but IMHO it's still in the best interests of the French to take him alive and interrogate the hell out of him.
Keep in mind that while France has something akin to our miranda warning, somebody arrested for terror charges does not get to see a lawyer until their 72nd hour in custody. If this guy is part of a larger movement, they could get him to spill quite a bit in that timeframe.
Shephard Smith is pissing me off royal on this one. He keeps talking about a “man” who admits to being a terrorist who killed 7 Jewish people including a Rabbi and 3 children. Not once has he used the word Muslim. Yet in the same 5 minutes, he has no problem identifying the American soldier who shot Afghans.
Baptist for Life? Bass fishing League?
Big fat Liar? Kindly clarify
So now they say the French are not going in....
...They have 300 cops, but they are waiting for reinforcements.
French police NEVER patrol alone...ususally they patrol in threesomes.
(bass fishing was the best..)
>> No Right Wing Extremist?
Right-wing extremism is a misconception. The radical extremism and tyranny it’s meant to identify are in reality forms of Leftism. Hitler, Stalin, Mao: all Leftists.
Is this taking place in one of those Muslim ghetto neighborhoods?
Oooh . . .don’t I feel silly! Thanks! ;D
