According to the audio cassettes that were aired, Merah appeared 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.

Merah also tells police that he had not planned on being caught and that he knew and was ready for all of the tactics that the police and the negotiators would try.

He reminded the police that he is armed and knew that the SWAT team might shoot and kill him, but that he was ready to accept that risk.

Merah added that he was not afraid of death and loved death the way that the police loved life.
