French president says he cannot rule out boycotting Olympics opening ceremony


PARIS French President Nicolas Sarkozy says he cannot rule out the possibility that he might boycott the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.

Sarkozy says he cannot rule out any possibility in deciding how to respond to the unrest in Tibet. He says he is waiting to see how the situation evolves there before taking a course of action.

Sarkozy spoke Tuesday during a visit with a military regiment in southwest France. His office says Sarkozy was referring specifically to the idea of a boycott of the Aug. 8 opening ceremony.
