Al Qaeda-trained militant killed in French police siege

The French police siege to capture a suspected al Qaeda-trained militant came to a bloody end Thursday morning in Toulouse when commandos shot Mohammed Merah in the head as he fired wildly back at them, CNN reported authorities as saying. Merah emerged from a bathroom in his apartment and fired more than 30 shots at police as they burst in to end a standoff that had lasted more than 31 hours, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said. He jumped out a window, still shooting, and was found dead on the ground, Interior Minister Claude Gueant said. Two police officers were injured in the raid, Gueant added. More from CNN.
