(London Telegraph) The mother of French terrorist Mohamed Merah said she was “wracked with guilt” at having been unable to prevent his killing spree, as video footage of his bullet-scarred flat was released.

Merah, 23, murdered seven people in a nine-day rampage, before being shot dead by Toulouse police on Thursday. He had been locked in a 32-hour stand-off with the authorities before his death.

The first glimpse of the inside of his flat after the shoot-out has now emerged, showing the devastating damage caused by the exchanges of fire that ended with Merah being killed.
