Mother and three daughters stabbed in Alps resort 'over outfits'

A man has been arrested after a woman and her three daughters were stabbed at an Alps resort in southern France, authorities said.

Jean-Marc Duprat, a deputy mayor for the town of Laragne-Monteglin in the Hautes-Alpes region, said the mother and her girls, aged eight, 12 and 14, were on holiday at a nearby resort when they were attacked on Tuesday morning.

He said the suspect, who is not related to them, was upset they were wearing shorts and T-shirts. The condition of the woman and her daughters was not immediately known.

Laragne-Monteglin is 110 miles north-west of Nice, where a Tunisian man killed 84 people last week by driving through a crowd on Bastille Day.
