TOULOUSE, France (AP) -- The French interior minister says the suspect of a killing spree has died after jumping from his apartment window after police stormed his apartment following a 32-hour standoff.

Claude Gueant says the suspect, who claims links to al-Qaida, jumped after police entered the apartment and found him holed up in the bathroom. Police and the suspect exchanged fire before Mohamed Merah died.

Gueant says two policemen were injured.
