NotesNews: 29 April: A young Chinese, apparently drugged, who spent eight hours slumped in a chair at Orly airport while a dozen of his countrymen besieged the offices of the airport police, was later driven away by ambulance to a Paris hospital. The Chinese who staged their demonstration outside the police office in which he was being detained refused to move away until he was "liberated".
