French prosecutors seek suspended sentence for Benzema in sex tape trial


French prosecutors on Thursday said they were seeking a 10-month suspended sentence for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema over his alleged complicity in an attempt to blackmail former France team-mate Mathieu Valbuena with a sex tape. Benzema is one of five people on trial over the 2015 extortion attempt, which led him to be dropped from the French national team for five-and-a-half years.
