On 19 March, Mohammed Merah, a French citizen of Algerian descent and a self-described member of al Qaeda, killed three Jewish children and an adult at a Jewish school in Toulouse ; the previous week he had shot dead three French soldiers of North-African origin. At first, the killer’s identity was not known. On 22 March Merah was tracked down by French police and shot dead. Ni patrie, ni frontières discusses and criticises the reaction of the Left to Merah’s killings.
