Blog Not vetted story Vetted story Toulouse Cedex 4, France - 20 June 2012

A gunman claiming links to al-Qaida was holding four employees of a bank hostage in southern France on June 20, 2012, not far from the former home of drive-by killer Mohamed Merah, who shot dead seven people in March, including three Jewish schoolchildren.
