Toulouse gunman: Video tapes to be used in case against police

The lawyer acting for the father of Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah says she has two videos taken during the police operation at his apartment that ended with his death.

His father has hired Zahia Mokhtari to sue French special police over his son's death.

She told Reuters television:

"(In these videos) one was able to see that he was surprised by this operation against him because in the video he was addressing the French security forces saying: 'why are you killing me? I am innocent, you have betrayed me.'"
