Murder In The French Alps

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.

Another Reason Not to Hike or Mountain Climb

Some poor soul hiking in the French Alps stumbled across the bodies of 6 mountaineers who appear to have been caught in an avalanche of rocks and snow. The bodies were roped together in two groups. Police are still trying to determine who the climbers were. Sad.
