Sunday 25 April 1993

THOSE attempting to track down the monsters responsible for the mass rapes perpetrated in Bosnia need look no further. An Iranian newspaper has identified the culprit. It is none other than the French commander of the UN forces in Bosnia, Philippe Morillon, according to the weekly Keyhan Hava'i. General Morillon, it assured its readers last week, was guilty of 'raping and assassinating a great number of innocent, defenceless girls' in the embattled republic.

The French Riviera has a wan charm in winter. The light is still pretty, if flintier; sole strollers with dogs occupy beaches that in August are jam- packed with loungers, and the French adapt with customary efficiency to the cold. In Cannes and Juan-les-Pins the fur coats and the buckled tartan sleeveless numbers adorn the backs, respectively, of the permed and Ray-Ban'd ladies of a certain age (62, roughly) and their pooches; and the cafe terraces set up butane-powered standard-lamp heaters whose Art Deco down-reflectors make it possible to sip a pastis or even with a bit of fortitude dine al fresco.

Sir: In his interview of my brother, Lord Christopher Thynne ('The beastly business of Longleat', 3 July), Jim White offensively suggests that I was 'on holiday in St Tropez' while my father lay dying. I had sought my stepmother's advice before departing for the South of France, where I go every year during the summer months for a work retreat. She advised me not to delay my departure, in that my father might linger on for weeks, or even months. She thought life should carry on as normal, and that I should return when summoned.
