French after ambassador

France said that it would ask the Zaire authorities to waive the diplomatic immunity of their ambassador to Paris, Ramazani Baya, following his involvement in a fatal road accident 10 days ago.

The ambassador was said to be driving 120km per hour in a 30km zone on 23 November when two adolescent boys were hit and killed in the Riviera resort of Menton. Mr Baya has already left for Kinshasa. Mary Dejevsky - Paris
