Police hunt gunmen over Alps murders

TWO or more killers were last night being hunted over the murders of a family in the French Alps, as police continued to probe the dead father's relationship with a brother and his work with a defence-satellite technology company.

While French authorities continued to insist they could not say if the killings had been the result of a professional hit, they confirmed each murder victim had received at least three bullets, including two shots to the head, a technique seen as a signature of assassination.

One investigator said: ''We know the number of weapons that were used and the kinds that were used.

"Examination of the grooves on the cartridges and of the system for firing the bullet shows there was more than one killer.''

The seven-year-old daughter of the family, Zainab, was reported to be out of danger following operations to repair a fractured skull.
