France Gunman Buried

Location: Toulouse, France
March 30, 2012

Relatives react by the coffin of Mohamed Merah during his funeral ceremony near Toulouse, southern France, Thursday, March 29, 2012.  Mohamed Merah is blamed for a series of deadly shootings which have shocked France and upended the country’s presidential race. Merah, who claimed allegiance to al-Qaida, died in a hail of gunfire one week ago after a dramatic 32-hour-long standoff with law enforcement. Algerian authorities said they didn’t want to take Mohamed Merah’s remains, as his Algerian-born father had wanted.
