BBC Alps shootings interview in full: ‘I left girl to get help’


A British cyclist who was the first person on the scene of the shootings near Annecy last week has been speaking exclusively to BBC News.

Brett Martin described how he assumed there had been an accident as he gave first aid to the injured daughter.

But he soon realised that Saad al-Hilli, his wife and mother-in-law, and a French cyclist had been shot dead.

He had to leave the badly-injured seven-year-old Zainab al-Hilli in order to fetch help as he had no mobile phone signal.
