A man has been found tortured to death in a Paris apartment, police said on Wednesday, with holes in his feet thought to have been made with a drill.

The body was discovered Tuesday after a neighbour heard cries from the apartment in the northeastern 19th arrondissement, and later noticed blood in the hallway.

The victim was neither the tenant nor the owner of the apartment, a police source told AFP.
