A gunman has shot dead a man, two of his sons and a third child at a Jewish school in France.
He opened fire outside the Ozar Hatorah school, in the southern city of Toulouse, then pursued children inside.
The gunman then escaped on a scooter or motorbike.
President Nicholas Sarkozy visited the scene, accompanied by Richard Prasquier, president of CRIF, an umbrella group for Jewish organizations in France.
"It is horrible," Prasquier told The World afterward. "Can you imagine? There is a woman who has lost her husband and two of her children."
Prasquier said there are very few Jewish Schools in the area. "For me there is no question that he knew he was in a Jewish school and he wanted to kill Jewish children."
Police won't comment on the motive, but say the same gun was used in two separate incidents last week in same part of France, in which three off-duty soldiers were killed.
