Four people were killed in what seens to have been a robbery of a British-registered car in the French Alps near Grenoble. An eight-year-old girl was critically wounded in the same attack. A second little girl, said to be four years old, was found alive hiding under the bodies of two dead women in the backseat of the car. One of the dead men was the driver of the car, and the other was a cyclist who had apparently come across the robbery while it was in progress.
In other news, the Russian company that makes the Kalashnikov (AK-47) assault rifle is in financial difficulties, and may be facing bankruptcy.
