French papers condemn “barbaric” killing of aid worker

Michel Germaneau is on the front page of all French papers this morning. Al Qaeda in the Maghreb killed the 78-year-old aid worker after taking him hostage in Niger last April. Libération is critical of the media for not paying more attention to his captivity while Aujourd’hui en France takes a close look at the organisation behind the assassination, Al Qaeda in the Maghreb. This and other stories in today’s French press review: TUESDAY, 27th JULY 2010

 

Articles in today’s French press review:
 
France Soir: “A barbaric act”
 
Aujourd’hui en France: “Third French citizen to die in captivity in 25 years”

Libération: “Who are the assassins of the French hostage?”
 
Le Figaro: “Nicolas Sarkozy wants to retaliate after Germaneau’s assassination”
 
Le Figaro and Le Parisien look at the rising popularity of tattoos.
