Four people, three of them children, were killed when a gunman opened fire outside a Jewish school in southwest France on Monday, the local prosecutor said, raising a previous toll of three dead.
“He shot at everything he could see, children and adults, and some children were chased into the school,” Michel Valet, the local prosecutor, told journalists, saying the death toll stood at four dead, including three children. He said the children were aged three, six and 10.
Reuters said that five people were injured in the attack, which occurred as students were arriving for morning classes.
Israel’s foreign ministry declared itself ‘horrified’ by the attack.
