— France's interior minister says prosecutors have opened a preliminary investigation of two Paris police officers in connection with the suspected rape of a Canadian tourist inside police headquarters.

An interior ministry statement Sunday says both police officers, who haven't been named, as well as a third who wasn't charged but is named as a witness in the investigation, have been placed on suspension pending the investigation's outcome.

Prosecutors are investigating an accusation of gang rape made by the Canadian tourist last week. French media reports, citing police sources, say the woman met the off-duty police officers in a nearby bar.

The police headquarters, on an island in the Seine River, is home to Paris judicial police and is often evoked in France by its address, 36 Quai des Orfevres.
