PARIS (Reuters) - Under-fire French presidential candidate Francois Fillon on Sunday gave a defiant 28-minute speech to a rally of thousands of supporters in Paris in which he did not say whether he would continue his campaign or not.

He made the speech after a week of high-profile desertions from his campaign, and as senior officials of his The Republicans party discussed how to replace him.
