French based new and current affairs channel France 24 (France Vingt-Quatre) report addresses allegations that the former head of the French intelligence office for Territorial Surveillance, Yves Bonett, confirmed to the media in Toulouse, about Mohammed Merah has been an informant for the French Secret Service.
Sarkozy threatens to scramble any broadcast of video of the Touluse shootings, even outside of France.
French presidential candidate, Marine Le Pen, preisdent of the far right Front National (FN) party and lawyer, has made public statements alleging that Mereh was in the pay of the French government.
Italian paper, Il Foglio, alleges that Merah travelled to Israel in 2010 - with the support of French spy agencies.
Was there also a third shooter in Toulouse, or is this a rouse to divert attention away from Merah and his connection to the French secret service?
Was Mereh a manchurian candidate?
