    Frenchman trained with Taliban?

    Approximately 85 Frenchmen have been training with the Pakistani
    Taliban raising fears of future attacks following the shooting deaths
    of seven people in southern France. Authorities are investigating
    whether Muhammad Merah, the gunman who was killed in a dramatic
    gunfight with police Thursday after a 32-hour standoff at his Toulouse
    apartment was among them. The 24-year-old former auto body worker
    traveled twice to Afghanistan in 2010 and to Pakistan in 2011, and
    said he trained with al Qaeda.
