Three killed in shooting outside French Jewish school

PARIS (Reuters) - A man on a scooter opened fire outside a Jewish school in Toulouse in southwestern France on Monday, killing one adult and two children, a police source said.

A fourth person was injured in the attack, which comes after three soldiers were killed in two separate shootings in the same region by a man who escaped from the scene by scooter.
