Toulouse prosecutor Michel Valet said the gunman killed a 30-year old Hebrew teacher, his two children aged three and six, and another child. A 17-year-old was also shot and in hospital for treatment.
“The attacker was shooting people outside the school, then pursued children into the school, before fleeing on a heavy motorbike,” Valet told reporters.
The assailant used a heavy-calibre firearm and another weapon. But officials could not say whether the guns were the same used in the killing of three soldiers in two separate shootings last week by a man who escaped on a scooter.
A woman named Lagarde has been touted as the next leader of the IMF.

With the demise of OBL and DSK we may have seen the end of the world in May as predicted. Interesting top brass has been told to STFU about Bin Laden and the escapade that took him down. The world enthralled with the toppling today of Strauss-Kahn now that he has officially resigned his post as IMF head and potential president of France. Yes, I plan to move to France and don’t want to watch the likes of DSK as president from near or far.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn DSK has resigned his head post in the IMF and plead not guilty to the rape charges in a hearing. Was bail set, not sure. He wants a one million dollar bail. But they also want to put electronic monitoring on him. He should have kept his little pecker in his big pants. How ironic that a poor, immigrant, black, Muslim, hotel maid, woman from Guinea has squashed the career of what would have been the mark of the beast from the founder of the euro. Kahn is Jewish, both parents were Jews.

The black woman in question, and in hiding, has been described as both pretty and plain. Sort of a Cleopatra syndrome where the men write the history and write in what they will. Another person described her as pretty with large breasts and a nice rear. But the French have called her not pretty because they saw her when she fingered, oops bad word choice, DSK in a lineup.
“She came from a country in which poor people had little or no justice, and she’s now in a country where the poor have the same rights as do the rich and the powerful,” Shapiro said. “What (Strauss-Kahn) might be able to get away with in some countries, he can’t here in this country.”
But Shapiro dismissed suggestions that the woman had made up the charges or tried to cover up a consensual encounter.
“This is nothing other than a physical, sexual assault by this man on this young woman,” Shapiro said in an interview in his Manhattan office. He said that the woman didn’t know who was staying in the 28th-floor suite she went to clean on Saturday afternoon, before she said she was attacked.
DNA should settle what went on. Once he said it was consenual that tells everyone that he was there and that he did have a sexual contact with the black woman, a poor woman from the country of Guinea. She might get paid. His past won’t come in unless he takes the stand. There was more than one charge but the only one that has been named is oral sex. Was sodomy involved? We hope this is not another Polanski case. If the maid has the only electronic key to enter the suite that could incriminate the DSK and show that this woman couldn’t care less who DSK was. She came forward as a rape case and that’s all that matters. The woman is in hiding and Strauss-Kahn is on Riker’s Island under suicide watch wearing an orange jumpsuit. Now that’s justice.
Update: What if this maid is a lying illegal piece of shit? What if this black woman is just another scam runner from Africa? Does it make her case a lie? No, not by itself. But if she laid a trap for DSK and he fell into it with his dick then she is guilty of many things including making false accusations.
The thing that bothered me about the first hearing was that she did not know who the man was. She works in an over the top luxury hotel in NYC the Sofitel and we know a bunch of illegals don’t take rooms there, no only jobs! If this woman is really an illegal in sheep’s clothing then send her black ass packing…no passing go. But if DSK is guilty then throw the book at him.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was denied bail on Monday on attempted rape and other criminal charges, and prosecutors said they are investigating whether he may have engaged in similar conduct once before. source: http://ca.news.yahoo.com/france-shock-imf-chief-charged-sex-assault-010256567.html
Defense lawyers, who sought unsuccessfully for Strauss-Kahn to be released on $1 million bail, denied the charges against their client, once seen as a strong contender for French presidential elections next year.
Update: DSK has been denied million-dollar bail when he went before the judge for criminal charges filed. He has to wait in jail until the next round.
The original account said it was sodomy, but this latest one calls it forced oral sex. The French are predicting that DSK will resign after his court appearance today.
According to an account given by the woman to police, Strauss-Kahn came out of a bathroom naked, pursued her down a hallway, and pulled her into a bedroom, where he started to sexually assault her. The woman said she fought him off, then he pulled her into the bathroom, where he forced her to perform oral sex on him and attempted to remove her underwear. The woman once again broke free and alerted hotel staff, who called police, the authorities said.
The French political bigshot who heads the International Monetary Fund was arrested for allegedly sodomizing a Manhattan hotel maid yesterday — hauled off an Air France flight just moments before takeoff from Kennedy Airport, police sources said.
Three Port Authority detectives pulled Dominique Strauss-Kahn from the plane’s first-class cabin just two minutes before it was due to depart for Paris, according to the police sources.
