France to pay for removal of risky breast implants
Question of the Day
PARIS (AP) - France has agreed to pay for 30,000 women to have potentially faulty breast implants removed, as authorities called for those behind their manufacture to be held responsible.
Implants made by French company Poly Implant Prothese have been pulled from markets across Europe and South America over concerns they could rupture and leak silicone into the body.
International police agency Interpol clarified Saturday that a “red notice” issued for company director Jean-Claude Mas was unrelated to the scandal.
The agency said Mas has been on its most-wanted list since June in connection with a drunken driving charge in Costa Rica.
French Health Minister Xavier Bertrand told Europe 1 radio on Saturday that those behind the implants must “answer for their acts.”
