The alleged Al-Qaeda militant believed responsible for a killing spree is dead, a police source said Thursday, after he resisted a raid on his besieged home in southern France.

Three police were wounded in the assault, one “fairly seriously”, with journalists able to hear sustained gunfire from at least two weapons as police entered the flat in Toulouse where Mohamed Merah was holed up.
