American media focuses on Sarkozys’ hunger for hotdogs

Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama made a joint call for tougher sanctions on Iran yesterday at the White House but the media seemed more interested in a Presidential trip to Ben’s Chili Bowl earlier in the day! WEDNESDAY, 31st MARCH, 2010

In today’s international papers, we take a look at Nicolas Sarkozy’s official visit to Washington DC. The media seemed far more interested in what he was eating than what he was saying! Meantime, G8 foreign ministers were tucking into some delicacies of their own in Québec – we have the pictures to prove it. Also, have breast implants had their day? And finally, we look at the near-psychic ability of toads in Italy (well, not quite…)
 
Here are the articles we looked at in today’s international press review:
 
New York Times: Sarkozys eat half-smokes at Ben’s Chili Bowl
TMZ: French Prez Gasses Up D.C.
 
The Guardian: Barack Obama and Sarkozy stand side by side on Iran – and hamburgers
 
Drudge Report: Dynamic duo lead charge on Iran 
 
Daily Mail: Hilly gets into a sticky situation with Milly (but everyone looks smart in their regulation G8 blue anoraks)
 
Times Online: “Bye bye, buoys, breasts are out”
 
The Independent: Toads with a super sensitive side hopped it before l’Aquila quake
