Sarkozy’s security “war”

After successive nights of rioting in Grenoble last weekend, Nicolas Sarkozy has fired a senior official in the region and announced meetings to discuss the “behaviour” of the gypsy community. Last weekend’s violence was sparked after police shot a Roma burglar. Le Monde and Libération lead today on Sarkozy’s “security war”. FRIDAY, 23rd JULY 2010

 

Articles in today’s French press review:
 
Le Monde and Libération lead on Sarkozy’s security ‘war’
 
Le Figaro’s front page shows Prince Albert of Monaco whose wedding is set to take place in July 2011
 
France Soir, le Parisien and the sports paper l’Equipe all lead with the Tour de France. It is going to come down to the wire between Alberto Contador of Spain and Andy Schleck of Luxembourg. The Tour finishes this Sunday in Paris. For now, Contador leads by eight seconds.
 
We finish with two light stories: one in Libération on the new photo fad, the so-called “duck face” and in Le Figaro we look at luxury hotels… for cats and dogs!
