Police in France are searching for a man after the bodies of a woman and four children were found in an apartment in a town east of Paris on Christmas Day.
According to news website Actu17, which first reported the discovery, the victims were a woman and her four young children.
It added that police were looking for a 33-year-old man, believed to be the father of the children, who was “on the run”.
Prosecutor Jean-Baptiste Bladier confirmed that five bodies had been found.
The Versailles judicial police service is investigating.
In late November, a 41-year-old man confessed to killing his three daughters, aged four to 11, and turned himself in.
Police found their bodies in the man’s home in the town of Alfortville, in the southeastern suburbs of the capital.
A month earlier, a gendarme killed his three daughters before taking his own life at his home in Vemars in Val-d’Oise.
