PARIS (Reuters) - France's financial prosecutor on Tuesday opened a preliminary inquiry over reports Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux hired his student-age daughters for summer jobs while a member of parliament.

A report by satirical TV show Quotidien said on Monday that Le Roux employed his two daughters several times as parliamentary assistants during their school breaks.
