French police are still surrounding the home of the gunman suspected of killing three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers around Toulouse. The Interior ministry has denied previous reports of his arrest. President Sarkozy is in Toulouse and was attending the funerals of the murdered soldiers at a nearby military base. The suspect, named as Mohammed Merah, is reported to be a French national of Algerian origin, and claims he belongs to al-Qaeda and acted to "avenge Palestinian children". Police say the suspect was planning to strike again and have detained several members of his family, including his brother and mother. Meanwhile, early Wednesday morning the bodies of four victims of the shooting were flown to Israel, where their funerals took place in Jerusalem. French and Israeli Foreign Ministers were among those attending. For more on this, RT talks to Gerolf Annemans, Parliamentary leader of Belgium's Vlaams Belang Party.
