Sylvain Mollier was shot first in Alps shooting, may confirm he was the target

Sylvain Mollier was hit by the first bullets, the report leaked to the French Le Parisien newspaper suggests. This confirms some early reports that suggested he was the target.

The killer then shot Saad al-Hilli, his wife and mother-in-law while they sat in their car.

French investigators suggest the killer was acting alone.

The family, from Surrey, were on a camping holiday on the shores of Lake Annecy when they were killed.

The report details how forensic tests suggest Mr Hilli was outside the car with his seven-year-old daughter Zeinab when the shooting started and had attempted to escape with his family before being shot, the BBC’s Christian Fraser in Paris says.

In panic, Mr Hilli reversed the car into a bank of earth surrounding the remote car park above the hamlet of Chevaline, the report suggests, trapping the back axle and preventing his escape.

The two British girls orphaned in the French Alps massacre were away from school without permission, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.

“The girls were out of school without permission, and the teacher was asking why they were late back,” said a source close to the Anglo-French investigation.

The report does not suggest investigators are any closer to learning the identity or motive of the killer.
