France - Gunman Set To Kill Again

France gunman 'set to kill again

Key points

Police in France surround a block of flats in Toulouse where they say the suspect in Monday's shooting of a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school is holed up.

The man inside the building where the operation is taking place has claimed affiliation to al-Qaeda, says Interior Minister Claude Gueant.

The man informed police he wanted to "avenge Palestinian children" and denounced French "crimes" in Afghanistan.
The authorities have linked the Ozar Hatorah school shootings to the killing of three soldiers last week.

French media reports have named the suspect as Mohammed Merah, a French national of Algerian origin.

The funerals of the rabbi and children took place in Jerusalem and a memorial service is being held for the three soldiers at a base outside Toulouse.

Yahoo Sues Facebook

In what is either the boldest gamble of its history or the most boneheaded, Yahoo has filed a massive patent infringement lawsuit against Facebook.
The attack by the Internet icon against perhaps the most powerful consumer social networking site today is a controversial one, pitting Yahoo against a company that has surpassed it handily in recent years.
More to come, but here it is below. The lawsuit has been filed in San Jose, Calif.
Said Yahoo:
“Yahoo! has invested substantial resources in research and development through the years, which has resulted in numerous patented inventions of technology that other companies have licensed. These technologies are the foundation of our business that engages over 700 million monthly unique visitors and represent the spirit of innovation upon which Yahoo! is built. Unfortunately, the matter with Facebook remains unresolved and we are compelled to seek redress in federal court. We are confident that we will prevail.
