Nicolas Sarkozy's chief human rights official has become the latest public figure to rebuke the French president for receiving Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, saying France was not a "doormat" on which he could "wipe off the blood of his misdeeds."
"France is not just a trade balance," she told the daily Le Parisien, adding that any business deals must be offset by "guarantees" from him on human rights in his country.

Mr Sarkozy announced that Libya would sign for around ten billion euros worth of deals for French military hardware and a nuclear reactor.
The expected nuclear deal is part of a "pact of trust" with Muslim nations laid out last week Mr Sarkozy in Algeria, where he signed another nuclear cooperation accord.
