President Sarkozy warns over Merah shootings video

The al-Jazeera TV channel has decided not to air video material of the deadly attacks carried out by Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah.

Officials at the Qatar-based channel announced the decision after a plea by President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Mr Sarkozy called on all television channels not to air the footage.

He also criticised Merah's Algeria-based father for saying he wants to sue France over his son's death.
