GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney grabbed a double-digit primary win in Illinois Tuesday night. A CNN analyst says Romney did more than just win — he looked more presidential in his speech and used some humor.

“ … he was sort of mocking President Obama. That is a much more effective way to win over a lot of independent voters who aren’t looking for this hard right.”

The suspect in the shooting outside a French Jewish school is holed up in an apartment in the city of Toulouse this morning. MSNBC says the man shot and wounded three police officers this morning. Multiple media outlets are reporting 24-year-old Mohammed Merah has said he’d surrender this afternoon. Here’s Al Jazeera.

“France’s interior minister said the suspect told police he was on a mission to seek revenge. … He claims to be a mujahideen and belong to al-Qaeda and he wanted revenge for the Palestinian children and he also wanted to take revenge on the French army.”  

A homemade bomb has caused significant damage at the Indonesian embassy in Paris. euronews says an embassy employee spotted a bag with two wires sticking out, sitting in front of a window.

“The man moved the bag to the middle of the street, and shortly after — it exploded — blowing out windows within a radius of 50 meters and causing two vehicles to ignite.”

Rallies continue in support of Florida teen Trayvon Martin as federal investigators look into his death. Orlando’s WESH reports groups this morning will demand shooting suspect George Zimmerman’s conceal-and-carry permit to be taken away. A rally Tuesday night called for the removal of Sanford, Florida’s police chief.

“If he is not fired by 26 March, we will boycott the police department."
