On Monday 19th of March 2012 a tragic event happened at Toulouse. Toulouse is a town on the south of France. In fact, three children and one adult have been killed at the front of a Jewish school at 8:30 am. Children were 8, 6 and 3 years old. The killer has, few days before, killed 3 French military soldiers in Toulouse and Montauban (a town near to Toulouse). All these crimes are unbelievable, and since Monday France is totally in shock by these news. The violence was extreme, and nobody understands how is possible to kill children in cold blood.
The killer, Mohamed Merah, a 23 year-old French man, has been located by the police Wednesday 21st. He was in his apartment in Toulouse. After 32 hours when the raid have waited and tried to have Mohamed Merah alive, they killed him at his apartment. Moreover, he has filmed all his crimes, and he has sent a video montage with his crimes, songs, and some part of the Koran on it at the news channel Al-Jazira.
The young man is identified as a Islamist fanatic, and the police has arrested his brother and tried to know his involvement on this case.
