We recently purchased a home that has 1" square mirror tiles glued to one of the bedroom walls. Can anyone tell me how to remove them safely?

By "safely" do you mean "without breaking glass"? If so, I'd use a plastic tool to pry them up. Many tools come in plastic these days, from putty knives to kitchen utensils. On the first couple, hold a rag over the tile while prying it.
If you mean "without damaging the wall" that's another matter. I suppose it depends what was used to stick them on. Hopefully, they came with an adhesive backing that won't tear the drywall. You'll probably just have to try it.
You didn't say if there are a few or a wall full of these tiles. Hope it's just a few.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunatly the wall is covered with these tiles from about 6" from each edge. I am hoping to remove the tiles without breaking them mostly 'cause I don't want anybody cut. It just occured to me that covering the glass with tape (or tack paper) might do the job.
