URGENT ¥¥¥ Top French footballer cited in under-age prostitution probe

A French international footballer is being investigated in connection with the soliciting of a minor for prostitution, judicial sources told AFP on Wednesday.

The player's name appeared in the mobile phone of an under-age girl who has been arrested on minor theft charges and whose profile was sufficient to justify the opening of a preliminary investigation, the sources said, but did not identify him.
