Mohammed Merah, the alleged gunman, filmed the shootings as they happened. Today, March 27, 2012, it has been revealed that images of the murders were sent to al-Jazeera in Paris.
Images of the shootings accompanied by readings from the Koran were held on a computer stick. French President Nicolas Sarkozy added his voice to those asking that al-Jazeera did not publish the footage.
Deciding not to publish al-Jazeera said, "The Paris bureau received a video from an anonymous source [on Monday] entitled Al-Qaeda Attaque la France [Al-Qaeda Attacks France] that appears to show the recent killings in Toulouse and Montauban. "Given its contents, we immediately passed the video on to the French police as we were duty-bound to do and they are conducting their investigation. "In accordance with al-Jazeera's code of ethics, given the video does not add any information that is not already in the public domain, its news channels will not be broadcasting any of its contents."
They passed the evidence to French police and left it at that. The police have said that the forwarding of this footage to al-jazeera could indicate that Merah did not act alone. An accomplice or accomplices could still be out there. The package appears to have been sent on March 21. This was the day that the siege of Merah's home began therefore it is possible that Merah was not acting alone.
