 French Gaullists cut local links with Le Pen
    PARIS, June 2 (Reuter) - France's ruling Gaullist RPR party
 said on Friday that two of its candidates who allied with the
 ultra-rightist National Front (FN) for forthcoming municipal
 elections had obeyed party orders to call off the deal.
    The heads of two local RPR lists, including Serge Dassault,
 son of the late Jewish aircraft tycoon Marcel Dassault, had
 included members of Jean-Marie Le Pen's anti-immigration FN
 party on their lists in bids to oust left-wing mayors.
    RPR general-secretary Jean-Francois Mancel said Dassault
 agreed to dump the FN members from his list in the Paris suburbs
 while another local RPR chief would announce a similar move
 later in the day.
    Mancel said that any Gaullist who struck a deal with the FN
 for this month's nationwide municipal elections would lose party
 support.
