Kyrgyzstan in chaos

France Soir and Le Figaro lead with the French First Lady’s interview yesterday on the Europe 1 radio station during which she tried to put an end to the controversy surrounding rumours of infidelity. This and other stories in today’s French papers. THURSDAY, 8th APRIL, 2010

 

In Kyrgyzstan, the opposition has announced a government takeover and scores have been left dead after violent protests in the past couple of days. The Boston Globe’s “Big Picture” section shows 38 different photos that provide a sense of what has happening in the Central Asian state. Several photos show the police being beaten and dragged through the streets or jumping over walls in order to escape protestors.
