IN THE PAPERS

An overview of the stories making the French and international newspaper headlines. From Monday to Friday live at 7.20 am and 9.20 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2011-06-01

Presumed innocent: the killer cucumber

In today's French papers, worries about our health are the order of the day, with Liberation trying to work out where those infected cucumbers came from, and Les Echos concerned your phone could give you cancer. Meanwhile, Dominique Strauss-Kahn is back in the headlines - along with the man who seems to have replaced him at the top of the Socialist Party's candidate list.

The cucumber crisis makes the front page of Liberation.

Les Echos is more interested in the health risk posed by your mobile phone.

Le Figaro has been analysing Dominique Strauss-Kahn's defence strategy, while Le Parisien has an exclusive interview with the Socialist Party's new front-runner, François Hollande.
