French President Nicolas Sarkozy has instructed increased security measures at Jewish and Muslim buildings following Toulouse shooting on Monday.
He ordered French officials to secure all schools and religious buildings in the entire country.
Condemning the incident, the French president challenged that his country would not surrender to terrorism, and vowed that the perpetrators would be arrested immediately.
He also declared high alert for terrorism in Toulouse in order to protect places of worshipping.
He believed that anti-Semitism motives are to blame for the heinous attack.
The French leader has suspended his campaign for the country’s presidential elections due to the incident.
France has the largest Jewish community in Western Europe, estimated at about 500,000, as well as its largest Muslim population, about 5 million. A 50-year-old Rabbi and his two children, and a young girl were reported killed in a shooting earlier on Monday by a man on a motorcycle at a Jewish school in Toulouse.
