Maybe he bought some rotten apples and they won't take them back.

Not a bad idea. Plenty of food and water for a prolonged stay. And most importantly no need to order in Pizza with hidden microphones.

Yeah but a white guy probably kerbed a wheel somewhere today. Why pick on the Muslims?

Reports of one off duty policeman and a butcher, in the supermarket presumably have been shot.

Bit of a dodgy translation "touched" should have been "hit"

Before I came to Ireland, and we are going back 16 years, I was half planning to move to France; I speak fluent French...Thankfully someone far wiser than I will ever be warned m that things were heading this way .. so very sad and shocking.

The gunman is now alone with one policeman inside the supermarket, and all other hostages have been freed, according to the mayor of Trebes.

Does the release of hostages eliminate the ISIS connection? Doesn't seem their style.

Policeman is a bigger prize to him and its easier to manage just one person rather than having several who may try to take him down.

The Isis/Syria angle was also reported on SOR by some reporter at the scene.

I'm happy that went your way.

However, for all our sakes, I can't see any immunity for us in the long game with this. A lot of honest people will come. But hidden in among them will be this element - guaranteed.
