Ex-French minister investigates over child abuse claims

Paris - MAP - Prosecutors launched a preliminary enquiry Wednesday into claims made by celebrity philosopher Luc Ferry (pictured) that a French former minister sexually abused boys in Morocco several years ago before fleeing potential charges.
Police questioned on Friday a French politician who sparked fury when he alleged that a former minister molested boys at a Moroccan orgy and that senior figures covered it up, officials said.
Luc Ferry, a celebrity philosopher and former education minister, claimed this week in a televised debate that he had heard about the scandal from "a prime minister" during his own time in office between 2002 and 2004.
Prosecutors responded by opening an investigation. Sources close to the probe told AFP that police in the child protection brigade questioned Ferry as a witness at their headquarters on Friday morning.
