'The safety of our children...' George and Amal sue over 'illegal' pics of twins

George and Amal Clooney are set to sue a French magazine that published pics of their twins.

Voici published shots on Friday of the Clooneys with babies Alexander and Ella. The famous family appear to be in a private back garden at the time

In a statement, George says, "Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home.

"Make no mistake the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."

Under French law, public figures can only be photographed while going about their public lives - meaning George and Amal have a strong case.

And in Italy - where George and Amal were when the snaps were taken - photogs cannot capture images at a private residence.

George says: "The safety of our children demands" that he pursues a lawsuit.

The magazine responded saying the pictures published "do not put in danger Mr Clooney, his wife or their kids".
