A mother, father and grandmother were found dead in a British-registered car. A cyclist was also found dead nearby.

An eight-year-old girl was taken to hospital with head injuries and a gunshot wound. A four-year-old girl was discovered alive, having hidden under one of the bodies for several hours.
