Both Al-Jazeera and Le Parisien newspaper confirmed that the video footage had been seen in Paris.
An unnamed source in Le Parisien, Paris’s daily newspaper, said: ‘Investigators are trying to find out whether the letter was posted Tuesday night by Mohamed Merah himself or by an accomplice on Wednesday morning.’
The existence of an accomplice would end theories that Merah was a ‘lone wolf’ assassin who acted out of his hatred for the ‘enemies’ of Islam, and especially Jews.
On Sunday his brother, Abdelkader Merah, 29, appeared before an anti-terrorist judge in Parisand was formally charged with ‘complicity in murder’.
‘Signals from Abdelkader’s mobile phone were emitted close to the school at the time of the murders,’ said an investigating source.
Among numerous questions Abedelkader is facing is why traces of explosive were found in his car, and how much he knew about the arsenal of weapons his brother was storing.
