French President Nicolas Sarkozy visited the police barracks near where the siege on the suspected terrorist killer Mohammed Merah is taking place. All other occupants of the building where the terrorist has been hiding have been evacuated as police try to convince him to surrender.
The building is located in the same neighborhood as the police barracks. According to the latest reports, the suspected killer of seven people including Jewish school children has not been arrested as previously reported and negotiations are continuing.
Meanwhile funerals for the Jewish children are taking place in Israel, while the funerals for other victims are taking place in France.
