Twins arrested after sex attacks

6:45 pm on 11 February 2013

Police investigating a series of sexual assaults in France have arrested identical twin brothers, but don't know who to charge.

Vetween September and January there have been six similar sexual attacks in Marseilles on women aged from 22 to 76.

Traces of the perpetrator's DNA have been found on the women.

But police cannot say which brother carried out the attacks, as the DNA of identical twins is virtually identical.
