London (CNN) — The slaughter at Chevaline.
That’s what the French media has dubbed last week’s daylight execution-style slaying of a British-Iraqi family and a French cyclist at a rural mountain rest stop on the outskirts of the Alpine village popular with outdoor enthusiasts.
Each of them — the man; his wife; a woman believed to be his mother-in-law, and the cyclist — was found with two gunshot wounds to the head.
The couple’s 7-year-old daughter was badly beaten and shot. Their 4-year-old daughter hid for hours behind her dead mother’s legs.
