Alps Victim Was Grandmother

    British army personnel speak with police personnel in Oaken Drive in Claygate, south-east England, on September 10, 2012, near the house of a British family shot dead in the French Alps. The local Surrey police force told AFP they had evacuated the immediate area around the Hilli family home in the village of Claygate, southwest of London, due to "concerns around items found at the address".

    One of the four victims of a mysterious shooting in the French Alps last week has been identified as the grandmother of the two young girls who survived, police announced Monday. Zaina, 7, and Zeena al-Hilli, 4, survived the brutal shooting by hiding in the car where their mother and father were found dead. A passing cyclist was also killed. On Monday police bomb squads also arrived at the British family’s home, evacuating neighbors after officers found suspicious objects while searching the residence. Police are still working to discover what motivated the murders and who carried them out.
