Nope Not There


PARIS - Algerian authorities have refused to allow the body of an al-Qaida-inspired gunman who killed seven people in France this month to be sent there for burial as his father had asked, an official at a top French mosque said on Thursday.

Mohamed Merah, a Frenchman of Algerian origin who was shot dead by a police sniper last week following a more than 30-hour siege at his home in the southern city of Toulouse, will instead be buried in Toulouse, Abdallah Zekri told Reuters.
