(CTV) -- PARIS -- French prosecutors have opened a preliminary investigation into two Paris police officers in connection with the alleged rape of a Canadian woman at the city's police headquarters.
France's interior minister said in a statement Sunday that both police officers, who haven't been named, as well as a third who is considered a witness, have been suspended pending the investigation's outcome.
Prosecutors are investigating an accusation of gang rape made by the Canadian tourist last week.
