French television channel TF1 aired on Sunday a recording of negotiations between Toulouse terrorist Mohamed Merah and French SWAT teams over the course of the police's 32-hour siege on his apartment.

Ultimately, Merah was killed when the French SWAT teams stormed his apartment. He wounded a number of the SWAT team members, but was shot in the head during the gunfight.



According to the audio cassettes that were aired, Merah appears to intend on continuing his terror attacks.

Merah claims he has connections with al-Qaida and explains to the SWAT teams what methods he used to outwit the French intelligence agents who were assigned to keep him under surveillance.
