French plan for the suburbs runs into trouble

President Nicolas Sarkozy appeared to be at odds with outspoken urban affairs minister Fadela Amara, over the release of a master plan to help struggling youth in high-immigrant suburbs. The plan, which was promised by Sarkozy during his election campaign, was set to be unveiled in January 22nd in the Lyon suburb of Vaulx-en-Velin, but he said he planned to unroll his government’s proposals at the later date of early February, and perhaps in a different town. Amara responded that the change doesn’t affect anything, and an outline of the plan will be revealed as scheduled.
