Algeria Refuses Shooter’s Body

Mohammed Merah won’t be buried in an Algerian village, after its mayor responded negatively. “Algeria has nothing to do with this case, and we do not understand why some circles in France are trying to involve us in it,” a government source said. The 23-year-old Frenchman, who killed seven people in France, will likely be buried near Toulouse, the location of his final rampage at a Jewish school. Merah’s father, who wanted his son buried in Algeria, has lashed out at French authorities for killing Merah instead of putting him on trial, and threatened to sue the state.
