(02-19 17:26)

French industrialist Serge Dassault, 88, the billionaire manufacturer of Rafale and Mirage fighter jets, was in police custody for alleged vote buying, a judicial source said.
Dassault controls the right wing daily Le Figaro and Dasault Aviation.
The move comes a week after Dassault's parliamentary immunity was lifted. The senator is suspected of buying votes in Corbeil-Essonnes, east of Paris, where he was formerly mayor.—AFP/The Standard
