Manhunt On for Killer in France

A massive French police effort is underway to find a shooter believed to be responsible for the killing of four people outside a school Monday, as well as two deadly shootings last week. The bodies of a rabbi and three Jewish children killed in the barbaric shooting Monday will be transported to Israel for burial, according to the Israeli foreign ministry. France is on high alert after a gunman on a motorcycle shot down the unsuspecting victims outside a religious school, the third such attack in 10 days in the same southwestern area of the country. The Associated Press cited news reports that said that the same weapon was used in all three slayings, heightening suspicions that the killer has taken aim at minorities. As the country reeled, French President Nicolas Sarkozy appeared at the school to say that “everything must be done so the killer is arrested.”
