Terror strikes children in France

Police in France have confirmed that at least two children and an adult were murdered in a terrorist slaying at a school in Toulouse. Located in southwestern France in the Haute-Garonne region, the city witnessed the murder at school for Jewish children. Witnesses say that the criminal responsible fled on a motorcyle, leading police to theorize that the crime may be related to the murder of several French paratroopers last week in Montauban and Toulouse.

The school is located near a synagogue in the French city. Because of threats and attacks by Muslims and racists  in recent years, police protection and private security has been stepped up all over France at synagogues, Jewish schools and charitable institutions. 

The most recent attack occurred on the morning of March 19 as children arrived for classes just before 8 am local time. The assailant opened fire on the children and then fled, using a modus operandi quite similar to last week's attacks on the troopers. In both cases, police report that the murderer used a military-grade weapon.
