Toulouse, France – Three explosions flashed out late Wednesday from the building where Mohamed Merah, the suspect in a string of killings in France, has been holed up for nearly 20 hours in a standoff with French police.
Police had doused the streetlights two hours before the blasts went off, signalling perhaps the start of a final assault to bring in Merah, which had been expected during the evening.
The flash of explosives came from the building where Merah has taken cover from police, but it was not clear if police or Merah had triggered the blasts.
