Police search home of Alps shooting victim Saad al-Hilli as brother denies family feud

| Metro.co.uk

Officers from Surrey Police had erected a tent in front of the family home in Claygate, Surrey to conduct a search alongside a team of French officers.
Led by officer Marc de Tarle, the team of four have travelled to the UK in a bid to find out more about the family's life at home.
Saad al-Hilli was shot dead along with his wife, named by neighbours as Iqbal, and an older woman who was also travelling in their car near Annecy, France.

The couple's children - Zainab, seven, and four-year-old Zeena - were in the vehicle at the time, while a French cyclist, 45-year-old Sylvain Mollier, was also gunned down.

Prosecutor Eric Maillaud has revealed investigators are looking into the possibility that Mr al-Hilli and his brother had been arguing over money in the run-up to the deaths.

But Mr Maillaud said Zaid al-Hilli, from Chessington, Surrey, denied any disagreement or conflict in the family. ‘Simply because there’s a feud between two brothers, it doesn’t mean he is going to be the number one witness.’
Zeena was discovered eight hours after the shootings, hiding under her mother's body, but she has so far been unable to help officers.

Two relatives have arrived in France to comfort her.
Police will now look through every detail of Mr al-Hilli's life in a bid to find a motive for the crime, as well as searching his house and speaking to family and friends.
