Gaddafi out by July?

The French press focuses on the uprising in Libya, dubbing it a “stubborn war”. It’s been three months since the start of the crisis and the French army is expected to use helicopters to counter attack Muammar Gaddafi’s forces and shoot at specific targets. Their aim: force the Libyan leader to step down by July...

The Christian newspaper La Croix published a piece from the Libyan and Tunisian border. Reporting in the area has become extremely difficult as international journalists have been banned from entering Libya.
 
Le Figaro reports that France could be using a dozen helicopters in its next military mission, hoping to put an end to the conflict by July. That information has yet to be confirmed by the French military.
 
Meanwhile, the DSK scandal continues to make the headlines. Dominique Strauss-Kahn is accused of rape and sexual assault. He’s under house arrest in New York. According to Le Figaro, the flat he’s currently in, has become a tourist attraction.
 
The former IMF boss was leading the polls ahead of the socialist primaries in France... The election is due in October and the press wonders who will become the next party chief, now that DSK is out of the race.
 
The issue is on the front page of several newspapers, including L’Humanité, and France Soir
 
Martine Aubry, the current left-wing leader, implied on television that she could run in the primaries. She has not officially declared herself candidate but said she was “ready”.
 
According to Aujourd’hui en France, “Aubry is in the starting blocks”. However,
Le Figaro and Libération remain cautious, saying that she never “dreamed of becoming President as a child”. A survey published in Libération shows that François Hollande is set to win the primaries.
 
And finally, French movie star Jean Dujardin is shinning on the front pages of Aujourd’hui en France and 20 Minutes.
