France has condemned the flogging of several women in Sudan, who were being punished for wearing trousers.
The foreign ministry called on Khartoum to abandon the prosecution of several others charged with the same offense.
The women were arrested in a Khartoum restaurant and accused of wearing clothes that threatened the values and virtue of Sudanese society.
