- — Fromwire reports

PARIS— The trial of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy for corruption and influence peddling was suspended Monday less than two hours after it started, to allow a medical report on one of the defendants.

Sarkozy is accused of having tried to illegally obtain informatio­n from a magistrate about an investigat­ion involving him in 2014.

This is the first trial for the 65-year-old politician, who has faced several other judicial investigat­ions since leaving office in 2012.
