French gunman Mohamed Merah, who killed three soldiers and four Jews in France in the past two weeks, had been on a trip to Israel, France's Le Monde newspaper reported Thursday.

According to the report, Merah's passport had Israeli stamps in it. The purpose of his visit is not known, but analysts suspect he was either trying to visit the Palestinian territories or do reconnaissance to plan a terror attack.

Based on the stamps in his passports, Merah also visited Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Afghanistan.
