Mohammed Merah's father claimed that he would sue the French state over his son's death.
"France is a big country that had the means to take my son alive. They could have knocked him out with gas and taken him in," said Mohamed Benalel Merah.
"They preferred to kill him."
"I will hire the biggest named lawyers and work for the rest of my life to pay (their) costs. I will sue France for having killing my son."
