PARIS (Reuters) - The French anti-doping laboratory of Chatenay-Malabry, where disgraced American cyclist Lance Armstrong's samples had been tested, has been provisionally suspended by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) on Tuesday.

"This provisional suspension was imposed due to analytical issues self-reported to WADA by the laboratory," the agency said in a statement, without elaborating on the reasons why.
