French killer said he posted murder videos on webMarch 23rd, 2012 - 3:56 pm ICT by IANS
Paris, March 23 (IANS) Mohammed Merah, the main suspect in the Toulouse and Montauban shootings who was killed during a police operation on Thursday in Toulouse, said shortly before his death that he had filmed the murders he had committed and posted the videos on the web, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins told RIA Novosti.
“He (Merah) said he had posted videos on the internet but we don’t know where and when,” Molins said.
The prosecutor said French police found a bag with a video camera, which contained three videos featuring killings of paratroopers in Montauban and Toulouse and the murders in the Jewish school, where Merah shot three children and a rabbi dead.
Molins said that one of the recordings showed a conversation between Merah and a man of North African origin who was selling his scooter. Merah subsequently shot the man in the head, crying: “You kill my brothers, I will kill you.”
Merah, a 23-year-old French citizen of Algerian descent, was killed Thursday as the police stormed his apartment in Toulouse after almost a 30-hour standoff.
