French Minister: Suspect Said He'll Surrender

TOULOUSE, France (AP) - The French interior minister said a suspect in three deadly attacks, who is holed up in a building surrounded by police, has thrown his handgun out of a window but has other weapons.

Claude Gueant said the man is talking to a police negotiator and says he'll surrender in the afternoon. The minister said police want to take him alive.

The gunman claimed connections to al-Qaida and is suspected of killing three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers in three attacks.

Officials say the man's brother was arrested.
