Argentine police are investigating the shooting death of two French tourists. The two female victims, both 30 years old, were found Friday in a tourist area in northern Argentina's Salta province.

Officials told the state-run Telam news agency that one of the women may have been sexually assaulted.

A Salta official said the pair were last seen alive at an area hostel on July 16.

French embassy officials Sunday were headed to the Salta province to meet with Argentine authorities investigating the killings.

No arrests have been made in the case.
