TOULOUSE, France (AP) -- France's interior minister says a suspect in three deadly attacks, who is holed up in a building surrounded by police, says he plans to surrender.

The man has thrown his handgun out of a window, but the French official says he has other weapons and is still talking to negotiators.

The minister says police want to take him alive.

The alleged gunman is a 24 year-old of French nationality who claims he has links to al-Qaida. He's accused of killing three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers.

French police raided the house and exchanged fire with the man, whose brother is under arrest. Two police officers were injured.

The French minister says the man "wants to take revenge for Palestinian children" killed in the Middle East, and is angry at the French military for its operations abroad.
