Girl who survived Alps shooting returns to the UK


The seven-year-old girl who survived the deadly shooting in the French Alps that killed her parents and grandmother is back in Britain.

French police said Zainab al-Hilli returned to her home country earlier on Friday after leaving hospital.

She was found badly injured at the scene by British cyclist Brett Martin.

Zainab and her four-year-old sister Zeena were the sole survivors of the attack, which also claimed the life of a local man who witnesses the slaying.

French investigators met with their British counterparts on Thursday to discuss the killings.

Following the meeting, the lead prosecutor handling case told the media that the motive behind the murders lies in Britain and not in France.
