French Resistance Leader Raymond Aubrac Dies at 97

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Raymond Aubrac, whose parents were sent to Auschwitz, and his wife, were the most celebrated couple of the French resistance, fierce underground fighters against German occupation. Aubrac’s pregnant wife Lucie famously led a daring commando raid to rescue him from the Nazis.

AFP reports that President Nicolas Sarkozy paid homage to “a heroic Resistance figure” whose “escape, thanks to the bravery of his wife Lucie Aubrac, has entered into the legend of the history of the Resistance.”

Marine Le Pen Says Sarkozy Forces Halal Meat on Parisians

Monday, February 20th, 2012

The Guardian reports that French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen switched her campaign back to immigration on Sunday, by claiming all meat in Paris was halal, as she tried to head off President Nicolas Sarkozy’s attempts to lure her supporters.

At a congress of her National Front party in Lille, Le Pen said she had proof that all meat in Paris was halal and that she would lodge legal complaints against distributors for misleading consumers.

“This situation is a real deception and the government has been fully aware of it for months,” she told reporters at the conference. “All the abattoirs in the Paris region sell halal meat without exception.”

The main meat industry association, Interbev, denied the allegation and said most meat in Paris was not slaughtered under halal or kosher practices.
