Victims’ families demand inquiry into Toulouse murders

MARSEILLE, France -- The families of the victims of Mohammed Merah have called for a parliamentary inquiry into failures that allowed him to murder four Jews and three French soldiers in the Toulouse area.
The families’ attorney, Patrick Klugman, said the parliament should set up a committee of inquiry in light of the findings of a recent report, which named “objective failures” in the authorities’ handling of Merah, a 23-year-old Muslim radical whom police killed in a gun fight after the murders.The report by France’s police comptroller unit said the failures meant that French authorities miscalculated the threat posed by Merah.
Klugman made the statement Wednesday to France Inter, a radio broadcaster, on the eve of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s first visit to the school where on March 19 Merah gunned down his Jewish victims, a rabbi and three children.
