TV station gets video of France shootings

Al Jazeera's Paris bureau received video of the shootings in southwest France blamed on Mohammed Merah, and gave the material to the police, bureau chief Zied Tarrouche said Tuesday.

The video arrived by mail on Monday on a USB stick along with an unsigned letter crediting al Qaeda with the attacks, he said.

The memory stick contained two clips with a total of 25 minutes of material, Tarrouche said.

Al Jazeera kept a copy when police took the original, but has not decided whether to air the footage, he said.

Mohammed Merah, 23, was killed Thursday at the end of a 32-hour siege of the apartment in the city of Toulouse where he was holed up.

    Airing it will only fuel these psychos further and would be horribly irresponsible.

    Reading the accounts of this perp's background shows him as any wayward, unemployed youth. Arrested several times for crimes from theft to armed robbery. He was recently arrested for theft and driving without a liscence. Two week's before the horrible incident he was seen by witnesses hopping night clubs.
    Hardly a religious nut or extremist. Wish he was captured alive. Police could have learned more of his connections.

    As if we couldn't figure that one out on our own...

    Welcome back to the days of attacks by the lone wolves whose purpose it is to attack servicemen when they least expect it.
