Toulouse killings: Murder Footage sent to al-Jazeera
 Part of channel(s): 2012 Midi-Pyrénées and Toulouse shootings (current event)



Video footage filmed by Mohamed Merah, who killed seven people in south-west France, has been received by al-Jazeera in Paris, police sources say.

A computer memory stick containing a montage of clips along with readings from the Koran was sent to the TV channel before being passed to police.

Merah, 23, was killed in a shoot-out with police last week.

His brother, Abdelkader Merah, has been charged with complicity in the murders, but denies the accusations.

The spate of shootings, which included the killing of three young children, shocked France.

The package sent to al-Jazeera was reportedly dated 21 March, the day police surrounded Merah's apartment, according to Le Parisien daily newspaper.

"Investigators are trying to find out whether the letter was posted Tuesday night by Mohamed Merah himself or by an accomplice Wednesday morning," Reuters quotes the newspaper as saying.

Mohamed Merah, a French citizen of Algeria descent, died in a shoot-out with police following a 32-hour siege of his apartment in Toulouse.

During the stand-off, he admitted shooting dead three soldiers in two separate incidents, and, last Monday, killing three children and a teacher at a Jewish school in the city.

He also boasted of filming the incidents.

Meanwhile, Merah's father told the Agence France-Presse news agency his son would be buried in Algeria, his ancestral homeland.

Mohamed Benalel Merah also said he would take legal action against French authorities for his son's death, saying they could have chosen to capture him alive.

Merah's older brother, Abdelkader Merah, 29, is being detained on suspicion of complicity in murder and theft, and involvement in terrorism.

Abdelkader Merah denies the accusations but says he was there when his brother stole a scooter used in the attacks. He also denies being proud of his brother.

Mohamed Merah had described himself as an al-Qaeda member, and told police he had bought weapons for 20,000 euros (£16,700; $24,400) using money taken through break-ins and hold-ups.

On Monday, President Nicolas Sarkozy - who faces elections next month - said he would ban militant Islamist preachers from entering the country.

"Are there other Merahs? All the security, intelligence and police services in democratic countries are on the lookout," Mr Sarkozy told France Info radio.----

  • This means NOTHING if we can't see the VIDEO. BULLSHIT story that poster "MB-UK" would love us to believe. He stated in previous comments with me, concerning this story, that "it is VERY rare when the main stream media lies". What a joke that is, making MB-UK, nothing but a BIG JOKE!!! He also believes that 9/11 went down like the US government claims. What a MORON!

    • @MB-UK Your reply has nothing to do with my retort. You should try to retort, instead of insulting. Insults have nothing to do with the issues. They are simply, personal attacks, which indicates poor character.
      On another note, I commend you for not deleting my comments. In this respect, I think you are a good LiveLeaker, even though we disagree. Ciao!

      Even if you saw the video, you'd just say that it was doctored.
      No piece of evidence will ever do, you'll just keep adding intricacies to your conspiracy theory, layer upon convoluted layer.

    • @gatyair It's difficult today to manipulate video, without it being detected. So, I have to disagree with you on that. Like I have told a few others, I challenge ANYBODY to produce even ONE piece of evidence or proof, regarding the toulouse killings! Without any proof or evidence, this story is just a fairy tale, and nothing more.

      How about Muhammad Merah's brother admitting he knew about the murders?

      It's a very elaborate fairy tail, I'll take the parsimonious explanation any day.

    • @ComradeAgopian Nothing will EVER be shown, because the entire story is a fabrication. Have you seen ANY proof, to ANY part of this story. There has been ZERO proof or evidence presented, thus far. No blood, no bodies or victims, no crime scene footage, no dead suspect. No nothing! It' all a LIE!!! There is nothing to prove otherwise.

    • @smaalle Why so nasty, smaalle? Can not your brain use common sense and logic? Why lower yourself by insulting and using vulgar language? I challenge you to show me ONE piece of evidence regarding the toulouse killings. Are you capable of doing this without being disrespectful and using vulgar language? Please, meet my challenge! Just ONE piece of evidence. This shouldn't be difficult, coming from someone making as much noise about my comment, as you have. I'll be waiting anxiously for your repl More..

  • one of the scenes is supposed to show him grabbing a child by the hair and shooting them in the side of the head. pretty crazy stuff if true.

    I heard the gabriel giffords shooting tape is just as fucked up and that we will never ever see it.

    • @acehardware The Gabriel Giffords incident had something very strange that set it apart from other similar cases involving a gunshot wound to the head. Head shots have one thing in common. They produce a LOT of blood. In any of the available video, concerning that event, there is NOT any blood to be seen, anywhere. No even the EMTs or anybody else that physically touched her, after she was "shot", had any blood on them, or their clothing or sterile gloves. Highly, highly, highly unusua More..

    • @golem Oh, yeah? Why is that, golem? And by the way, do you know what a troll is? You should find the definitions to words before using them, to avoid embarrassing yourself. I believe you have misused the word "troll" in this instance.

  • That Sarkozy is really lucky, he was lvery low in polls for years and expected to be booted in this election. Then 1 month before votes that killing happens, what a good timing for the neocon president.
