WASHINGTON - The man suspected killing seven people in France was on the list of known or suspected terrorists who are prohibited from flying to the United States according to a U.S. counterterrorism official. The suspected shooter, Mohamed Merah, had been on the no-fly list since 2010. Merah was killed today after a 32-hour standoff in Toulouse. The seven murders were carried out recently in three separate motorcylce shooting attacks. The murders are believed to be the first killings inspired by Islamic radical motives in France since the September 2001 attacks on the United States.
