Two French students were killed at their London residence on Sunday evening. British police revealed on Wednesday that they were stabbed in the head, neck and chest.

Two French students were found dead in an apartment in east London over the weekend after having been stabbed, it was confirmed Wednesday.
  
London's Metropolitan Police said it was investigating the deaths of two young French people in an apartment in New Cross on Sunday, where firefighters were called in to deal with a fire.
  
Autopsies on the two bodies showed they were stabbed in the head, the neck and the chest, Scotland Yard said.
  
Their respective identities have not been released by British police, who will be holding a press conference at 10:00 am (0900 GMT) on Thursday with regards to the inquiry.
