The father of a family slain in the French Alps was identified Thursday as Saad al-Hilli, a 50-year-old born in Baghdad, a French police source said.

The father, mother and grandmother from the same family were found dead on Wednesday following a shooting in which another man also died. Two daughters from the family survived.

The police source also confirmed that the Hilli family lived in Claygate, Surrey, southwest of London.
