Tensions rise in Toulouse following fatal shootings


In March, garage mechanic Mohamed Merah, 24, killed seven people in the French city of Toulouse including three Jewish children. He claimed he had been trained by al- Qaeda.

After an unprecedented manhunt, he was finally traced and shot dead in his inner city apartment, which he had turned into a fortress.

But nine months on, Merah's crimes have stoked fear and resentment in Toulouse, with discernable tensions now growing between the Muslim and Jewish communities.
