A British family holidaying in France have been gunned down in their car in what appears to be a professional hit. The family including a mother, father , two children and their grandmother were in a BMW heading to Saint Jorioz camping site when someone opened fire on them. A local man riding his bike, who may have witnessed the bloodbath, was also gunned down and killed. Two children aged 8 and 4 were found alive. The eldest girl is suffering from three gunshot wounds and the youngest was found ,8 hours later, under the legs of her mother who may have fallen on her when she was killed. At least 15 spent bullet casings from an automatic pistol were found at the crime scene. Currently police have no motive for the murders. Both children are being protected by armed police at a local hospital.

OK loons, cast your minds back to 1968, when senator Bobby Kennedy was killed by an assassin’s bullets. The man holding the gun was Sirhan Sirhan, a Christian Palestinian born in Jerusalem, who was thrown in jail and basically never heard of again. Hmm, well hold your horses people, Sirhan’s lawyers are now claiming it was all a friggin set up and it wasn’t Sirhan’s gun that killed the would-be President. The lawyers have got their hot little hands on new evidence that shows TWO (not one) gun was fired on that fateful day and guess what? They say it wasn’t Sirhan who shot Kennedy. Oh it gets better. The lawyers are claiming that Sirhan was “hypno-programmed” and subjected to “memory implantation techniques” to be the fall guy. Witnesses say they saw Sirhan Sirhan stand directly in front of the senator and fire off two shots before he was grabbed but medical evidence revealed Kennedy was struck by four bullets from behind him. Oh yeah and during the trial someone substitute the bullet found in Kennedy’s neck with a bullet from Sirhan’s gun. Hmm, so in other words, Sirhan Sirhan must be coming up for parole!
Sheez, who knew? Seems former Pakistani pres Pervez Musharraf is wanted over the assassination of ex Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Hmm, they’ve even issued an arrest warrant. Oh boy, a joint investigation team have concluded Musharraf was involved in the murder. Unfortunately he’s in exile in London and ain’t planning to return to Pakistan any time soon. During all the finger pointing the then President Musharraf government blamed Pakistan’s Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud for the death of Bhutto. How wrong was he?
Geez, in my day it only took one assassin to bump off someone not friggin 11. Authorities in Dubai believe Hamas leader Mahmud al-Mabhuh (Mahmoud al Mabhouh) was murdered by a hit squad made up of British, Irish , German and French passport holders. They are also pointing fingers and raising eyebrows at Mossad (Israel’s spy agency) who they believe organized the hit. The Hamas leader was killed in his hotel room last month while on a trip, allegedly to Iran, to buy weapons. The hit squad 11, who had prior knowledge of al Mabhouh’s movements, booked into a room down the hall from the target and either strangled Al-Mubhuh or injected him with a heart attack inducing drug before putting a “do not disturb” sign on the door and exiting stage left. The group used “touristy” disguises such as tennis outfits, wigs and hats to look inconspicuous during their brief stay at the 5 star hotel.
UPDATE : 6 of the Britons named in the plot (of which 3 live in Israel) are furious their identities were stolen and their names link to the assassination. Britain, Ireland and German authorities are claiming the passports are fraudulent.
