Another day, another sex scandal
French papers are awash with news of the latest scandal involving the sex lives of politicians after former education minister Luc Ferry alleged on a TV chat show that another ex-minister had participated in an "orgy" with young boys in Morocco.
In Thursday's papers, Libération puts former minister Luc Ferry on the front cover dubbing him "Dirty Ferry" after he alleged - without naming names - that another former minister had been caught at an "orgy with young boys" in Marrakech.
Le Parisien asks if this is the end of the French macho, now that the Strauss-Kahn scandal has made French women less afraid to denounce those who harass them.
In the same paper, there's the shocking story of ten-year-olds in the Paris suburbs locked in their classrooms during breaks to protect them from gunfights between drug traffickers.
And Le Figaro asks if French immigration policy is responsible for a damaging brain drain of qualified African professionals.
