PARIS, March 9, 2006 (AFP) - The body of a man whose throat was cut several days ago has been found stuffed in a bag left in a shopping centre in the French Riviera city of Nice, police said Thursday.

They said it appeared the man, aged in his 50s or 60s and without identification, was homeless.

His body had been stuffed into a sports bag measuring about a metre (three feet) long that was dumped in the underground storage area of the centre.

Shopworkers, thinking it contained merchandise, had taken the bag up to an entrance Thursday morning and left it there. Seeing it untouched hours later, they opened the zip and made their macabre discovery.
