French President Nicolas Sarkozy has asked any TV station with footage of the attacks in southwestern France not to broadcast it.
Al-Jazeera said earlier Tuesday that it had received video footage that appears to show the attacks on soldiers and a Jewish school, including the cries of the victims and the voice of the perpetrator.
Paris bureau chief Zied Tarrouche said the images were contained on a USB key sent with a letter to the Qatar-based television station.
Tarrouche said the station was still deciding whether to show the footage.
Police traced the attacks to 23-year-old Frenchman Mohamed Merah who was killed after a more than 30-hour standoff with police at his apartment building.
