UN chief condemns killings outside Jewish school

UNITED NATIONS: UN leader Ban Ki-moon on Monday condemned "in the strongest possible terms" the killing of four people outside a Jewish school in France, his spokesman said.

Ban was "saddened by the tragic deaths" of the three children and the father of two of the dead children in the shooting in the southwest city of Toulouse, said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky.

"He condemns in the strongest possible terms this act of violence and expresses his sincere condolences to the victims' families and the Jewish community, as well to the government and people of France," said Nesirky.

A suspected serial killer who shot dead three French soldiers of North African origin in the same region last week staged the shootings, French authorities said.
