The attack was particularly violent and awful, specially for the 2 children.

What are your theories on the case?

The family was Iraqi Arab and the father was an opponent of the former Saddam Hussein regime who fled the Iraq. Therefore it might has something to do with organized crime stuff or so.

I've heard it on the radio news.

Nah. Far-right groups wouldn't kill like that (very precise shots) and not in that location (British Iraqis killed on vacation in Switzerland by far rights?!). Mysterious. Maybe some honour-killing thing?

I dont think so. And Far Right can kill anywhere. But it does look like a targeted hit so maybe the Hussain theory will hold water.

This far right conspiracy theory is an obvious MI5 cover up story. In fact, The British/Iraqi satellite engineer and his family were Iraqi/Taliban spies and he was making a drop of sensitive military information to the French cyclist who has Algerian/Taliban links. The other cyclist, a British James Bond type, caught up with them on the mountain and performed the hit on behalf of Her Majesty's Secret Service. Being British he let the kids survive (not cricket to kill the kids) and just winged one to make it look kosher (no Israeli involvement however).

The far right theory is mine Your theory sounds plausible too. And who is the swiss woman with them? She is not iraqui.

She could have been a Swiss private banker (Geneva is quite close) handling the money which was in payment for the sensitive information.

No, that is too far fetched. A banker in the middle of the Alps? For an espionage mission? NOPE

Geneva is only an hour away. The banker may not have known it was espionage related. Swiss private bankers regularly travel to meet clients.
