PARIS (AFP) - France's former first lady Valerie Trierweiler has revealed she may write a book about her split with the President and said she is "more disappointed than angry" about the scandal.

In an interview with Parisien Magazine to be published on Friday, Jan 31, 2014, Ms Trierweiler described her visit to India this week as a "return to freedom, far from the political world and its betrayals".

President Francois Hollande has faced criticism over the curt manner in which he announced at the weekend that he had split from Ms Trierweiler after his affair with an actress, in a brief statement to AFP.

The former first lady said she was "more disappointed than angry" about the break-up.
