Martine Aubry for president?

Today's French papers are all about the upcoming presidential election - with Martine Aubry's chances of becoming the Socialist candidate, immigration policy and crime in Paris' tougher suburbs all making the headlines.

France Soir rates Martine Aubry's chances at the presidency pretty highly - but they're more interested in the colour of her lipstick than the content of her policies.

Le Figaro focuses on interior minister Claude Gueant's plan to deport more immigrants.

Le Parisien looks at gang violence in the Paris suburbs - can sending riot police help?

And La Croix visits a Belgian school - where the French and Flemish-speaking children don't even play together.
