French gunman Mohamed Merah buried in cemetery near Toulouse

Gunman Mohamed Merah, who killed seven people in south-western France in three shootings earlier this month, has been buried outside the city of Toulouse.

Merah, 23, was shot dead after a 32-hour siege at his home last week.

He was buried at the Cornebarrieu cemetery, after Toulouse's mayor sought a delay, saying it was "inappropriate" for him to be buried there.

Simeon Paterson reports.
