23-year-old Mohamed Merah has been buried in the Muslim section of a cemetery in Toulouse.

His Algerian-born father wanted to bury him in Algeria, but the authorities refused the request.

Merah filmed himself killing three schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers earlier this month.

He was shot in the head last week after a stand-off with police in Toulouse.
