Killer from France is dead - level 2, A12

26-03-2012 22:00

A man who killed children and soldiers was killed by police in France. The man hid in his flat and he waited for 32 hours. The police waited too.

After 32 hours, the police wanted to end the waiting and tried to get the man out of the flat. They attacked the flat with full power and they found the man in the bathroom. He started to shoot at the policemen. Then he tried to jump out of the window. He continued shooting. The police started to shoot too and they killed him.

The man killed three children and a teacher last Monday. The teacher was 30 years old. The children were 4, 5 and 7 years old. One of the children was a daughter of the school’s director.

The man killed them because Israel killed Palestinian children, and because France sent soldiers to Afghanistan.

You can see some pictures from the street in France in the video.
