PARIS, Feb 19 (AFP) - Radio France Internationale has started broadcasting round-the-clock French-language programmes in Baghdad to complement its Arabic station already available there, the state-owned radio network said Thursday.

The RFI broadcasts have been available on the FM band since Monday, it said.

The Arabic programming - pumped out by RFI subsidiary RMC Moyen-Orient - has been on offer in the Iraqi capital since July 2003 and in the southern Iraqi city of Basra since November 2003, also on the FM dial and on a medium-wave frequency.
