The British police appealed for witnesses to help solve the killings of two 23-year-old French bioengineering students who were stabbed dozens of times in the head and neck and then set on fire in their apartment in southeast London. Laurent Bonomo was stabbed nearly 200 times, and his friend Gabriel Ferez suffered nearly 50 stab wounds, the authorities said. The bodies were found late Sunday. The students, from Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand in central France, were working on a DNA research project at Imperial College London.
