Mohammed Merah

Mohammed Merah, the man suspected of murdering seven people in France, including three children and a teacher at a Jewish school, has died during a police raid after he was holed up in his Toulouse apartment, on March 22, 2012.

He was found dead on the ground after jumping out of his first-floor apartment window in the midst of a gunfight with police, Interior Minister Claude Gueant told reporters. The exchange of fire began after police failed to get Merah, a 23-year-old Frenchman of Algerian descent, to give himself up.
