The brother of a British man shot to death with his family in the French Alps has denied he was in dispute with the dead man over financial matters, investigators have revealed.
Prosecutor Eric Maillaud said Saad al-Hilli's brother had spoken to police on Friday morning after reports of a feud emerged.
"He turned up again this morning and he said 'no, I don't have a conflict with my brother'," Mr Maillaud told reporters at a press conference in Annecy.
He had first spoken to UK police on Thursday after learning of the massacre from media reports.
The prosecutor also revealed that Mr al-Saad's four-year-old daughter Zeena, who survived by hiding under her mother, had spoken to police about the attack, describing what Mr Maillaud said was the "fury" and "terror" of a massacre during which "25" bullets were fired at the victims.
Iraqi-born Mr al-Hilli, 50, was gunned down in his car alongside his dentist wife, named by neighbours as Iqbal, and a woman believed to be her mother.
Mr al-Hilli and one of the women were shot in the head along with a French cyclist who apparently stumbled across the attack.
The couple's children, Zeena and her sister Zainab, seven, are apparently the only witnesses to the shootings on an isolated road and are now under police protection.
Mr Maillaud said Zeena had told police she was with her mother and father when the attack happened but she did not see anything because she "dived under her mother's legs" when the shooting began.
