Student Killings Fugitive Hands Himself In
One of two fugitives wanted over the killing of two students who were attacked by a mob armed with hammers, baseball bats and knives has handed himself in to police.
Sofiane Tadburt, 21, died after being stabbed 30 times, while Kevin Noubissi, also 21, was attacked seven to eight times in Grenoble, France.
According to unconfirmed reports the gang were out for revenge after an incident outside a school involving Mr Noubissi's younger brother "looking the wrong way" at another teenager.
The two suspects were named as Ilyas, 18, and Ibrahim, 20, and their details were passed on the police stations across France.
Both men are reportedly known for their "extreme violence".
Ilyas turned later himself in at police headquarters in Grenoble.
He was released from prison last week after serving a sentence for stabbing a supermarket security guard, while Ibrahim is the subject of legal action over an alleged knife attack at a cashpoint.
The attack, which took place last Friday in the Echirolles suburb of Grenoble, has sparked outrage in France, which prompted President Francois Hollande to travel to the city on Monday to visit the families of the dead men.
Eight people have so far been charged with murder as a result of the attack which prosecutors believe involved between 10 and 15 people.
Funerals for the two friends took place on Wednesday at the local mosque in Grenoble attended by hundreds of mourners.
