Sarkozy arrives at scene of school shooting

French President Nicolas Sarkozy arrived Monday at the school in the southern city of Toulouse, where four people, including three children, were shot dead earlier by an unknown attacker.

Several government ministers and Socialist presidential candidate Francois Hollande were also expected to visit Ozar Gatorah school, where a man wearing a motorbike helmet opened fire on children as they arrived for class, DPA reported.

He was later seen fleeing the scene on a large scooter or motorbike.

In a television interview shortly after the attack Sarkozy said: "It's a tragedy that there are crazy people who are capable of doing something like this."
