WASHINGTON (Reuters) - NBC News' broadcast of a video manifesto by the Virginia Tech university killer drew criticism from police on Thursday, and some of the victims' family members canceled interviews with the network.

ADVERTISEMENT NBC said it had acted responsibly in showing the images, which it said represented a small fraction of what it had received. But the network and a rival, ABC, said they would limit future use.

The images dominated U.S. news coverage on Wednesday evening, two days after the killing.

"We had planned to speak to some family members of victims this morning but they canceled their appearances because they were very upset with NBC for airing the images," said NBC's "Today" morning program co-host Meredith Vieira.

Police handling the investigation into the shooting in Blacksburg, Virginia also expressed disappointment at the airing of the images and rants by Cho Seung-Hui, who killed 32 people and then himself on Monday in the worst shooting rampage in modern U.S. history.

State police chief Steve Flaherty said, "We're rather disappointed in the editorial decision to broadcast these disturbing images."

Cho, a 23-year-old student, mailed photographs of himself posing with the guns he bought and video railing against rich kids and debauchery. The package to NBC News was mailed after he killed his first two victims on Monday morning but before he cut down 30 more people in classrooms.

While NBC acknowledged that the material from Cho was likely devastating to the victims' families and that its news division was split over whether to air the material, NBC News President Steve Capus defended the decision to do so.

"This is I think as close as we will ever come to being inside of the mind of a killer, and I thought that it needed to be released," he said on MSNBC. "Pretty much every single news organization all around the world has made the same decision, that it was appropriate to release this information."
