France shootings: Saad al-Hilli brother 'denies family row'

The brother of Alps shooting victim Saad al-Hilli has told UK police there was no dispute over "financial matters", French prosecutors have said.

Prosecutor Eric Maillaud said French officers would interview Mr al-Hilli's brother in the UK as a "witness".

Speaking at a news conference, he said Mr al-Hilli's brother went to the police after he heard media reports of the deaths - first to ask about al-Hilli's condition, and then, on Friday, to deny reports of a dispute.

Mr Maillaud also formally confirmed Mr al-Hilli and his wife were among four people fatally shot near Lake Annecy on Wednesday.
