Four people held hostage by a gunman in French city of Toulouse
Four people are being held hostage by man saying he is in the terrorist group Al Qaeda. The gunman is currently in the French city of Toulouse, next door to where Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah was killed.
Around 10 this morning a 30 year old man took four hostages in a bank (Société Générale) in a busy street of downtown Toulouse. The police declares they know nothing about the man except that he claimed he is a member of Al Qaida. People in the neighbourhood are worried: 500 meters from there, Mohammed Merah was killed on the 22nd of March after a tense stand up with the police.
