From the BBC: A gunman has opened fire on a Jewish school in the French city of Toulouse, killing three children and an adult, police say.

At least two people were also injured in the attack outside the Ozar Hatorah school in the north-east of the city.

Police are hunting for the gunman, who witnesses said was riding a black scooter.

The attack comes days after three soldiers were shot dead by a man on a scooter in the same part of France.

But gun control is supposed to eliminate gun crime?

Curious what the backlash against muslims will be like if this turns out to be islamic terrorism. Hopefully it's only one nut job.

You can't mention it was a Jewish school, nor that eye-witnesses say the man looked middle-eastern.

Update from BBC: French police are linking the shootings of four people at a Jewish school in Toulouse to the killings of three soldiers of North African descent in two separate incidents last week.

The same gun and the same stolen scooter were used in all three attacks, sources close to the investigation say.

A murderous gang of neo-Nazi ex-soldiers was being hunted last night after three children and a teacher were shot dead outside a Jewish school in France.

Since it can't be blamed on muslims and to whip up outrage, the interest here seems to have quickly waned.

Update:
quote:
The suspect is 24 years old, of French nationality and says "he belongs to al-Qaida," Gueant told reporters. He said the suspect "wants to take revenge for Palestinian children" killed in the Middle East, and is angry at the French military for its operations abroad.

The man was known to authorities for having spent time in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The shooting suspect is "talking a lot, claiming his jihadist convictions" and calling himself a "mujahedeen," Gueant said.

"He said he wants to avenge the deaths of Palestinians," the minister said, adding that he is "less explicit" about killing French paratroopers.
