French Alps shooting scene like a TV crime show: Witness
LONDON (AFP) - The scene of the shooting of a British-Iraqi family in France resembled the set of a TV crime show, the British man who discovered the victims said on Thursday.
"It was pretty much what you would imagine a set from (TV crime series) CSI Miami would be like," Mr Brett Martin told the BBC, in his first television interview since the shooting on Wednesday last week.
"There was a lot of blood and heads with bullet holes in them." He said one of the family's daughters, seven-year-old Zainab al-Hilli, was "prone on the road, moaning, sort of semi-conscious" when he stumbled across the scene in a forest area in Annecy.
Mr Martin, a former member of Britain's Royal Air Force (RAF), said he came across the tragic scene after he had set out for a bicycle ride in the French Alps at about 2.30pm (9.30pm, Singapore time).
