Here, sort this out,
Merah has spent considerable time in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Gueant said. Merah was sent back from Afghanistan to France by the U.S. Army, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said in Toulouse Wednesday. He said Afghan police had checked Merah's identification during a traffic stop, and as a result he was handed over to the U.S. Army, which then put him on board the first plane heading to France.
But a senior U.S. military official gave a different version from the French prosecutor about what happened to the suspect in Afghanistan.
The senior U.S. military official told the CNN contributor Fran Townsend that the French shooting suspect was stopped by Afghan forces who tried to turn him over to the U.S. military. The U.S. directed them to hand Merah to French forces since he was a citizen of their country. He was given over the French military by the Afghans and the French military decided to return him to France, according to the source.

Three explosions have been heard at a block of flats in the French city of Toulouse where a man suspected of killing seven people has been holed up since Wednesday morning.
The interior ministry could not confirm an assault on the flat had begun.
The blasts were accompanied by flashes of orange light.
Mohammed Merah, 23, is suspected of killing four people at a Jewish school last Monday and three soldiers in two attacks last week.
The blasts sent shockwaves around the quiet residential streets around the building, reports the BBC's Christian Fraser in Toulouse.

TOULOUSE, France (AP) — Riot police set off explosions outside an apartment building early Thursday in an effort to force the surrender of a gunman who boasted of bringing France "to its knees" with an al-Qaida-linked terror spree that killed seven people.
As the standoff dragged into a second day, hundreds of heavily armed police, some in body armor, cordoned off the five-story building in Toulouse where the 24-year-old suspect, Mohamed Merah, had been holed up.
Three explosions were heard and orange flashes lit up the night sky near the building. An Interior Ministry official said the suspect had gone back on a previous decision to turn himself in — and that police blew up the shutters outside the apartment window to pressure him to surrender.

On France 24 they're saying that the explosions were not the start of an assault, but rather an attempt by the police to 'intimidate' him into keeping his word about surrendering. This whole thing is just odd.
The new identity of the alleged killings of Toulouse and Montauban has "cut the legs". Mohamed Merah is the man who molested her daughter and tried to "indoctrinate" her teenage son, two years ago. This woman, who wished to remain anonymous, wants "absolutely testify." She said "the police know." She is a woman "angry" that is expressed.
"I am appalled. It took all these people are killed for Mohamed Merah has finally stopped. This is a huge mess ... ". According to this mother who lives in the old neighborhood where lived the alleged killings of Montauban and Toulouse , "the police knew all about the danger of this individual and his radicalism." "I filed a complaint against Mohamed Merah twice and I raised on numerous occasions. in vain. " A small portion of the facts she mentions were revealed in the day by many media, based on the testimony of a woman, Malika . It reported an incident from 2010 when Mohamed Merah , threatening, had appeared in the district Izards, lattice dark, hooded, sword in hand and shouting "Allah Aqbar". "This is it threatened us that day, reveals our anonymous witness, we call her Aisha. And it is this day he assaulted my children."
"He forced my son to watch videos of unsustainable"
The day before, the son of Aisha, then aged 15, was accosted by Mohamed Merah . "He got into his car. He did listen to a CD of songs, into believing that it was the Koran." The songs are actually calls to go into battle. "He drove my son to his home, where it is still entrenched. In his apartment, there was a huge Koran in his living room and several large swords hanging on the wall. He won a then forced him to watch videos of Al Qaeda. " The scenes are "unsustainable". Women executed with a bullet in the head, and men slaughtered. "My son called me. Was finally able to recover. He remained locked over there from 17h to midnight ...".
Aisha complaint, which angered Mohamed Merah . "He came by our house. He threatened and beaten. He said I was an atheist and I have to pay like all the French. He kept repeating that he was a mujahedeen and die as a martyr, he would erase the Earth all those who were killing Muslims ... He also said that he and his friends would take my son and that I would more than my eyes to weep. " Two days later, Mohamed Merah would have attacked his son: "Why did you all about your mother?". "It hit him, took it, and my daughter intervened. He beat her. There were many people, but nobody moved." These scenes of violence (it also evokes a flash-ball with which he allegedly threatened his nephew), Aisha "kept everything": "dress her daughter torn and stained with blood, the complaint, mail recovery , photos and medical certificates ... "
A complaint "very detailed" filed in June 2010
Aisha's lawyer, Mr. Mouton, confirms that a "very detailed complaint" has been filed. "On June 25, 2010," Aisha complete. "I raised many times. No one ever told me what actions had been given," continued the mother. The lawyer, who "meets the sincerity of his client," says again: "The mother was heard, but I do not know whether an investigation was triggered and if so, what action has been reserved." Since Aisha was told that the alleged killings of Montauban and Toulouse was Mohamed Merah , she is "terrified". "He threatened us with death. He made the sign of the slaughter. I try to protect my family, but I'm afraid." The talk of Mohamed Merah . "If you see it, you offririez him coffee. It seems like a lamb and it would give him the good God without confession ... He has two faces. He could suddenly change their behavior. He could drink a beer from Two minutes later, while running through his prayers. "
"His brother the brain"
Unknowingly, Aisha confirms the statements we had received in late morning to "close" the young man. One, calling himself "Ben's", had referred to "the change of Mohamed, after the arrival of a group of extremists in the area". "He wore the traditional dress. He calling to young people about religion. Then there were rumors of his trips to Afghanistan. When I saw him, a few months ago, he was on a motorcycle, dressed in the West. It was a rodeo. It had a crest on the head and discolored a big tattoo Maori style, on the skull. " It is this peak blond evoked spontaneously Aisha. "That is why, and for his extremist views which he had repress mosques," said Aisha. The mother also reports "rodeos scooter and drive". "He boasted. He was also very urgent with the young girls of the neighborhood." But for Aisha, this is the brother of Mohamed Abdelkader, who is "the brain". "It was he who filled his skull. It is he who often went abroad, in Egypt." Tonight Aisha said "exhausted". "Why, despite all my reports, Mohamed Merah has he not been arrested? We still saw last week. We taunting. I have told all on numerous occasions to the police and prefecture. And today, there we are. This is incomprehensible and revolting. "

Sorry but this rings of pure BS to, in fact my BS alarm is almost burnt out it is ringing that hard.
This supposed Al Quiada terrorist is an Islamic warrior fighting for the Palestinian children? So why was he running around last week shooting black soldiers? If he was just killing Jews, then yes perhaps this story would make sense, but there were two separate incidents last week where 3 soldiers were killed, 1 in one incident then followed by 2 in the next one, all 3 were of African or afro Caribbean descent, now don't get me wrong here, but a lot of teh African immigrants into France are in fact Muslim, would a Muslim warrior be going out killing other potential Muslims in retaliation of what is happening in Palestine
Sorry but this smells more than my dogs farts, and boy do they stink
However, he said it was "quite strange that he did not react" to the explosions that were set off overnight to intimidate Merah.
"We heard two shots, we don't know what they were," Mr Gueant said.

They want him alive, and I just wish they would blow his a$$ up and be done with it. But he's already got a lawyer giving interviews on tv and claiming it isn't his fault, he had a hard childhood, or something or other. The whole thing keeps making me think there is more going on- he's providing a distraction, for other operations going on.
