Police in Paris have launched an investigation after two men, a father and his son, were found with their throats slit in a trendy part of the French capital. The attack appears to have been caused by a family conflict and another son has been arrested in connection with the murders, reports The Local.
A man was arrested in Paris on Friday suspected of slitting the throats of his father and brother outside a building in the capital's trendy 11th district, police sources told AFP.
The sources, who asked not to be named because they were not authorised to speak publicly, said the reason for the attack was being investigated.
The two men died at the scene despite efforts by paramedics to save them.
Police have called for caution to be taken before speculating over the motive for the double murder after it was reported that the knifeman shouted "Allahu Akbar" ('God is greatest', in Arabic), the report says.
