Images from the scene of the killing of four people near Lake Annecy
A gunman who opened fire on a British family in the French Alps has left four people dead and seriously injured a fifth person. Three of four victims were shot in the head: one man, named by news agencies as Saad al-Hilli from Surrey, an elderly woman and a French cyclist. A second woman was also killed. A girl, four, hid in the car for eight hours before being found by police. In this picture, French gendarmes block access to a road to La Combe d'Ire in Chevaline near Annecy in south-eastern France.
