A second man is in custody in connection with the Alps murders, a French prosecutor said today.
"We discovered a great number of munitions, explosives and detonators at his house," he added, saying the man may be involved in arms trafficking and was likely the business partner of a 48-year-old man arrested earlier.
He could not confirm a direct link between the arrest and the al-Hilli deaths.
