French Elections: Le Pen blow to Sarkozy's chances

France's President Sarkozy's hopes for re-election this weekend have been dealt a blow by the leader of the far-right National Front Party.

Marine Le Pen drew more then six million votes in the first round but she told her voters she will not vote for Mr Sarkozy or the Socialist Francois Hollande in the final round on Sunday.
