PARIS - France's upper house of parliament approved a bill on Monday that would make it a criminal offense to deny genocide, legislation that has caused tension between Paris and Ankara.

The bill, which was approved by the lower house in December, has triggered outrage in Turkey as it would include the 1915 mass killing of Armenians in Ottomon Turkey.

The text will now be put to President Nicolas Sarkozy who should approve it before parliament takes a break at the end of February ahead of the presidential election.
