BREAKING NEWS: Man arrested in France in connection with the murder of al-Hilli family
Saad al-Hilli (bottom right) was gunned down in September 2012 along with his wife and her mother in a woodland car park (top) close to the village of Chevaline in the hills above Lake Annecy.
Saad's two daughters Zainab, seven, and Zeena, four, survived the attack on September 5th 2012 but French cyclist Sylvain Mollier, an innocent bystander, was also killed. The arrested suspect is said to bear a resemblance to the motorcyclist whom forestry workers saw close to the attack. This e-fit (bottom left) was produced soon after the killings, but was not initially released because of fears he would go into hiding.
