The body of 23-year-old Mohamed Merah was buried in a cemetery in Toulouse today, after days of debate about what to do with his body.
Merah's father wanted him to be buried in Algeria, but the authorities refused for "reasons of public order."
The mayor of Toulouse relented to pressure from the central government in Paris to allow the burial to go ahead in the district.
The shootings were the worst terrorist attacks in France since the 1990s and have revived concerns about homegrown Islamist radicals carrying out violence.
