FRENCH AUTHORITIES SAY  five people, including a young girl, have been shot to death in a forest in the Alps.

An official with the regional administration for the Haute-Savoie region says three of the bodies were found in a BMW registered in Britain.

The Sipa news agency says the girl was found alive with bullet wounds on a forest road near the village of Chevaline but died later in the hospital.

Citing gendarmes, it says a cyclist discovered the girl, the three bodies in the car and a fourth body, of a cyclist lying nearby.

The identity of the victims is unclear. The British Foreign Office says it is aware of reports of the incident and is looking into it.
