French President Nicolas Sarkozy has urged TV stations not to air video of the attacks by gunman Mohamed Merah as al-Jazeera discusses showing footage.
Senior officials at the satellite TV channel are meeting in Qatar to consider the recording, received by the channel's bureau in Paris.
Merah filmed himself shooting dead Jewish children and unarmed soldiers.
Al Jazeera not to air French killings video
The network on Tuesday said the video did not add any information that was not already in public domain. It also did not meet the television station's code of ethics for broadcast.
The video shows the attacks in chronological order, with audible gunshots and voices of the killer and the victims. But it does not show the face of the confessed murderer, Mohamed Merah, and it does not contain a statement from him.

It's called censorship, look it up. I know it's not the nicest thing in the world to see, but asking someone not show it is censorship

Sarkozy is asking for this material not to be broadcast.
I am a little surprised the TV channel is discussing broadcasting this material.
I cannot think of any justification for broadcasting images of a person killing children.
