The week's news at a glance.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy announced radical new punishments for child molesters this week, after a recently released pedophile raped a 5-year-old boy. Police activated Frances version of Amber Alert when the boy went missing. They quickly found him in the garage of Francis Evrard, 61, who two months earlier had been released fromhis third stint in prison for sex-abuse crimes. Evrard was given Viagra in prison and had access to the Internet. He was a wild animal who was released and allowed to feast, said the victims father, Mustafa Kocakurt. After meeting with Kocakurt, Sarkozy said France would build a high-security prison hospital, where sex offenders deemed recidivism risks would be incarcerated for life. The only way to get out, he said, would be to undergo chemical castration.
