BEAUVAIS (AFP) - A 10-year-old French girl died Saturday after being viciously bitten by two dogs owned by her mother's partner, the police said.

The girl was playing with the dogs, thought to be mastiffs, in the courtyard of her mother's home in Auteil outside Paris when they turned on her.

Hearing her cries for help, her mother rushed in but was unable to save her.

The incident comes a day after a 20-year-old woman died after two of the family Rottweilers savagely bit her in the head in another Paris suburb, Noisy-le-Sec.

French Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie called last month for tough measures to monitor vicious breeds after a teenager was bitten to death.
