PARIS, April 18 (Reuters) - France soccer coach Raymond Domenech said on Friday his compatriots should not watch the August Olympics on television to make a statement on human rights.
"The French are saying they don't want the Games (in Beijing) because it's a scandal in the light of human rights in China," Domenech told the Le Monde daily in an interview.
"I'm telling people, if you're against the Games in China then don't watch them and turn your TV off. It would be a brave gesture and an act of civil duty.
