ZAKA: As Many as 10 People Shot in Toulouse

A representative of the ZAKA emergency service told Arutz Sheva, Monday, that between seven and ten people were shot, including six known dead, when a motorcyclist opened fire at the Otzar Hatorah synagogue in Toulouse, France, which also serves as a school. The six were identified as five students and a teacher. The Jewish Press.com reports that three children, ages 6-8, are fighting for their lives.

French police are checking the connection between Monday morning's attack and last week's shooting of three soldiers in Toulouse and Montauban, 47kilometers/29 miles away.
