Mohamed Merah

24 year old Algerian born Mohamed Merah claims to be a mujahideen and to belong to al-Qaeda.

On 11th March, 2012 we went to buy a motor scooter from an off duty French soldier in a suburb of Toulouse. He shot him in the head.

4 days later he rode a scooter to Montauban and machine gunned three paratroopers as they queued for a cash point. Witnesses described how he had turned over one of the wounded men who was trying to crawl away, and fired three more shots into him.

On Monday 19 March, he attacked the Ozar Hatorah Jewish school in Toulouse. He killed Jonathan Sandler, a 30-year-old rabbi and teacher of religion, and his two sons Gabriel and Arieh, aged four and five. The fourth victim was Myriam Monsonego, seven, daughter of the head teacher, who was reportedly grabbed by the hair and shot in the head.

French police surrounded Merah at a small block of flats in Toulouse, where he opened fire when approached. He was said to be armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle, an Uzi machine-gun and several handguns.

It s reported that he visited Pakistan twice, in 2010 and 2011. According to French newspaper Le Monde, he trained with militants in Pakistan before crossing the border into Afghanistan.

Merah had been arrested for bomb making in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar in 2007 and he was sentenced to three years in jail for planting bombs. He escaped jail along with up to 1,000 prisoners, including 400 Taliban insurgents, during a Taliban attack on southern Afghanistan’s main prison in June 2008.

Amazingly, he managed to carry out these murders whilst under surveillance by French anti-terrorist operatives.

He was shot dead by a police marksman while trying to shoot his way out of a Toulouse apartment after shooting three police officers when they stormed the building. Police subsequently fond that Merah had filmed his murders and say he was intending to publish the films on the internet.

Given that he was wearing a bullet proof vest, and that the marksman had to go for a head shot I think we should applaud his skill for a job well done. Over to you, Nick!

Craig Roy

Doesn't look much, does he? But Craig Roy, 19, was convicted over the death of 16-year-old Jack Frew in woodland near their school in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, in May 2010.

He stabbed the younger boy 20 times and slashed his throat with a kitchen knife.

Craig Roy, 19, was sentenced at the high court in Edinburgh on Thursday. He was convicted at Glasgow high court in January, after claiming Frew had pestered him and tried to blackmail him for sex.

During the 12-day trial, the jury heard that Roy had cheated on his long-term boyfriend Christopher Hannah with Frew and was plagued by guilt over his infidelity.

He admitted stabbing the openly gay teenager but claimed to have no memory of it.

On the night of the murder, he said Frew had sent a text message telling him to meet him in woods near their school. He claimed to have taken the knife to the meeting to scare the younger boy into leaving him alone.

Frew's windpipe was cut open, his lungs were punctured and there was knife damage to his ribs. Then instead of calling an ambulance for the dying teenager, Roy phoned his boyfriend for help for himself.

Roy's defence said he had a personality disorder which diminished his ability to control his actions but the jury rejected this claim, finding him unanimously guilty of murder after just two hours of deliberation.

Procurator Fiscal Janet Cameron said: "Craig Roy armed himself with a knife and carried out a violent, sustained and murderous attack on Jack Frew." She sentenced him to life imprisonment with a minimum tariff of 18 years.

Clearly a dangerous little bastard form whom the death penalty and a spell in the ovens would be more appropriate?

Eric Bikubi & Magale Bamu

Eric Bikubi and partner Magalie Bamu brutally tortured her younger brother Kristy for four days and then murdered him after accusing him of witchcraft.

After travelling from Paris to London in 2010, the couple, under the belief that Kristy has cast spells on another family member, drowned the teenager in a bath during a torture to produce exorcism.

Claims are that he was attacked with knives, sticks, metal bars, a hammer and chisel and that he "begged to die" before he slipped under the water. Kristy was reportedly tortured because he refused to admit to sorcery and witchcraft.

Both killers are from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Bikubi sought the advice of pastors in London. Kristy's torture went beyond the deliverance services carried out in African churches.

The Judge told the jury of seven women and five men that he was exempting them from jury service for the rest of their lives because the case was so "harrowing." "It is a case we will all remember," he told them, adding that court staff will offer help.

Kristy's father, Pierre, issued a statement that read: "Kristy died in unimaginable circumstances at the hands of people he loved and trusted, people we all loved and trusted. I feel betrayed. How could they accuse, judge and sentence? To know that Kristy's own sister, Magalie, did nothing to save him makes the pain that much worse."

Seeing they're so keen on the occult, these two should make prime candidates for Nick's ovens!
