The horror and mystery of the Annecy killings
John LichfieldAt the foot of the 3km climb of the Route de la Combe d'Ire above Lake Annecy, a sign in French, German and English warns: "dangerous road".
Up that track on Wednesday afternoon, there drove a British-registered BMW carrying a British-Iraqi-Swedish family of five. Soon afterwards two cyclists started on the climb. Near the top, the second cyclist, a local French man, overtook the other, a Briton.
When the British cyclist reached the dirt car-park at the top of the track, he found a scene of unbelievable butchery. A girl of about seven or eight years old staggered towards him and then collapsed. She had head injuries, inflicted by a blunt instrument, and a bullet wound in her shoulder.
