The family of radical Islamist Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah, who killed three Jewish children and a rabbi at a school in Toulouse, France in March, is alleging that French police committed murder against Merah.

On Monday, the family filed a lawsuit against police accusing them of of intentionally killing Merah, rather than capturing him alive and allowing him to speak, the Associated Press reported. Police shot Merah following a 32-hour standoff at his Toulouse apartment.

One of the Merah family’s lawyers is Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, who has also represented Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez. Known as Carlos the Jackal, Ramírez Sánchez is serving a life sentence in France for murdering two counter-intelligence agents and a French government informant.
