French Alps Shooting Likely Professional Assassination

Authorities say it looks like one


French investigators say the murder of a British man and three others on the edge of a secluded Alpine forest bears the hallmarks of a professional assassination as they revealed they were investigating allegations there had been a money dispute in the family.

The increasing belief among investigators that Saad al-Hilli was targeted means attention will focus on his private and professional life as they search for clues to any motive for the massacre.
