Mohammed Merah, the gunman responsible for the death of seven people in France over the past week, is dead. The Al Qaeda sympathizer died while police stormed his apartment after a siege that lasted 32 hours. He was shot in the head after jumping out of his window while continuing to shoot at officers. The incident sent shockwaves around the world, and has some observers wondering if we're seeing the emergence of a new kind of terrorism.
