BNP Paribas seeks AMF enquiry on WSJ column

PARIS, Sept 13 (Reuters) - BNP Paribas said on Tuesday that it had asked French market regulator AMF to open an enquiry about a Wall Street Journal opinion piece claiming that France’s largest bank could face a dollar funding crunch.

BNP Paribas, whose shares slumped more than 10 percent in early trading but later rebounded to gain 7.2 percent, said it had requested the enquiry earlier in the day after what it called the “false” report. (Reporting by Christian Plumb;Editing by Matthias Blamont)
