Onlookers in Toulouse gather outside scene of hostage incident

World News Toulouse, France - 21 June 2012

 

A group of curious onlookers gathered 200 meters away from the CIC bank, where four people were held hostage by a gunman on June 20, 2012. 

The incident has been linked to Al Qaida and required intervention from Raid, an elite police unit that negotiated with Mohammed Merah, who last March killed a rabbi and three young children at a Jewish school in Toulouse. The CIC bank is incidentally located a few blocks away from Merah's apartment.

Our contributor writes:

"Based on what I could hear from the scene, the gunman was wounded and stopped instantly. Three gunshots were heard."
