MARSEILLE, France (AP) _ France's Justice Ministry opened an investigation Wednesday after the discovery that some three tons of evidence to serve in an upcoming trial of Church of Scientology officials was destroyed.

"I will shed light on this malfunction," said Justice Minister Elisabeth Guigou. "Is it a mistake? Is it sabotage? It seems at first glance to have been an error."

The Marseille prosecutor's office said in a statement that the disposal of certain sealed files in late 1998 was the result of "negligence" by a court clerk and not an intentional act.
