Al Jazeera not to air French killings video

Network says video showing shootings that left seven dead in southern France did not meet its code of ethics.

More on that, from the UKPA: 

Merah apparently filmed all of his murders, which began on March 11 with the shooting of a French soldier. Before the rampage ended, two more soldiers, three Jewish children and a rabbi were killed.

Zied Tarrouche, Al-Jazeera’s Paris bureau chief, said the letter, written in poor French with spelling and grammar errors, claimed the shootings were carried out in the name of al Qaida.

Mr Tarrouche said the images appear to have been taken from the point of view of the killer, perhaps from a camera hung around his neck. He said they were a bit shaky but of a high technical quality.

Unfortunately, due to state of things, these videos will likely see the light of day at some point on the web.
