Royal takes swipe at rival’s remarks


French Socialist candidate Segolene Royal yesterday described as “very dangerous” remarks by presidenti­al frontrunne­r Nicolas Sarkozy suggesting that paedophili­a was determined by genes.

Royal said the comments showed the “brutality” of the rightwing candidate who is leading in public opinion polls ahead of the April 22 first round of voting.

“I find them very dangerous,” Royal said in a television interview when asked about Sarkozy’s remarks published in Philosophi­e magazine.
