PARIS - Several thousand Franco-Turks demonstrated in central Paris on Thursday ahead of a parliamentary vote on a bill that would make it a crime to deny the 1915 mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks was genocide.

Tension has risen between Paris and Ankara in the last week over the draft law put forward by members of President Nicolas Sarkozy's party that will be put to a vote around lunchtime.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan wrote a letter to Sarkozy last week warning political and economic relations would suffer grave consequences if the bill is passed.
