IN THE PAPERS

An overview of the stories making the French and international newspaper headlines. From Monday to Friday live at 7.20 am and 9.20 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2010-02-26

"Healthcare dilemma: U-shaped or square table?"

In today's international press review, we look at Obama's healthcare summit.

Barack Obama's healthcare headache is not over. The US President, congressmen and lawmakers debated over the healthcare issue for hours on live television.

The LA Times reports on this story. "A bit of drama, a test of patience at healthcare summit”, reads the title. It describes Obama as a mediator more than a President.

On the same story, the Denver Post reports about another heated debate. The choice of the table used in the program.

In other news, the Italian Prime Minister continues to make the headlines. A trop court dropped the charged against his former lawyer, accused of taking a bribe from Berlusconi during a orruption case in the 90s.

The pro government newspaper Il Giornale says it's a "victory" for Berlusconi, whose own trial is due to resume on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Guardian reports about millions of animals killed in Mongolia because of climate change. At the time of print, the newspaper reported about a UN appeal of more than £2 million, that would help around 60,000 families.

And finally, the International Herald Tribune talks about the first 3D fashion show.
