One of the two surviving girls from the assassinations in the French alps, four year-old Zeena al-Hilli, is back home in Britain.

She has returned from France with an aunt and uncle, a social worker and police family liason officers.

A search of the al-Hilli home in Surrey continues.

Zeena’s seven year-old sister Zainab has also been brought out of a coma at the hospital in Grenoble where she is being treated under police guard. French police believe she will supply vital information once she is in a fit state to be interviewed.

Intensive forensic examination continues of the remote forest track near the village of Chevaline above Annecy, where the girl’s parents, their father’s mother-in-law, and a passing cyclist were executed by an unknown number of assailants.
