Al-Hilli murders: Second man held in Alps probe

French police investigating the killing of a British family in the Alps in 2012 have said a second man is in custody.

It follows the arrest on Tuesday of a man from the Haute-Savoie region, said to resemble an identikit image of a motorcyclist seen near the murder scene.

Saad al-Hilli, 50, an Iraqi-born British citizen, was found dead in his BMW car; his wife Iqbal, her mother and a French cyclist were also killed.

Imogen Foulkes reports from Annecy.
