Journalists stand in front of the offices of the judicial police in Nanterre, near Paris, July 1, 2014, where former French President Nicolas Sarkozy arrived early Tuesday to be quizzed by investigators. Former French President Sarkozy was held on Tuesday for questioning into suspicions that a network of informers kept him abreast of a separate inquiry into alleged irregularities in his 2007 election campaign, a legal source said. Local media said it was the first time a former head of state had been held for questioning in modern French history. REUTERS/Benoit Tessier (FRANCE - Tags: POLITICS CRIME LAW MEDIA) less
