Gunman In Jewish School Murders May Have Filmed Shooting

March 20, 2012

France's interior minister says the man suspected of shooting three children and an adult to death at a French Jewish school may have filmed the crime.

Interior Minister Claude Gueant said witnesses have described the gunman as wearing a camera strapped to his chest during the bloodshed in the city of Toulouse on March 19.

President Nicolas Sarkozy has put the southwestern region of France on the highest-level terrorism alert following the shootings and two earlier deadly shooting attacks on French soldiers in the area.

The families of the school victims have requested that all four victims -- a 30-year-old rabbi, two boys aged 4 and 5, and a 7-year-old girl -- be buried this week in Israel, where the children also had citizenship.
