In the aftermath of a shooting that killed four in Toulouse Monday, France is taking immediate action to increase security around Jewish schools, French Ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot said in an interview on Channel 2.

"There is security around every Jewish school in France," Bigot said.  "We are going to provide more security."  Such steps, Bigot said  were necessary to protect French citizens and French value. The entire country is in shock from the "horror" of the incident and mourning the loss of innocent life, Bigot said. "This is a tragedy for all the French, not only the French Jews," he said.  "There is tremendous solidarity."

"These kids are our kid, the kids of all French people," the ambassador continued.
