Arrows were found in the bodies of three people found dead in the southern German city of Passau on Saturday, police confirmed.

They said it was not clear what their relationship was, what happened inside the hotel room or how exactly the three died.

Police in Bavaria added that they are now carrying out autopsies on the bodies, and that they have seized a white Renault pick-up which the victims drove to the hotel in.

All five victims were resident in Germany.

Employees of a hotel in the town of Passau found the three bodies and two crossbows in a room.

Local press reported that the man and the youngest woman were from Rhineland-Palatinate in the west of the country and the 33-year-was from 482km away in Lower Saxony, but they arrived together at the guesthouse.

Early on Saturday morning, the maid found a dead man and women holding hands on the bed, while the third lay dead on the floor.
