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 : 2011-06-20

Who elected the credit agencies?

In Monday's French papers, there's more fear of the Greek crisis spreading, journalists have calculated just how much the Libyan intervention is costing France, and is France finally starting to encourage democracy in North Africa?

Le Figaro is worried about the Greek crisis spreading - while left-wing politicians writing in Liberation say the austerity measures have gone too far - and Greeks can't suffer any further.

La Croix is focusing on the Maghreb - asking whether France has changed direction and is now promoting democracy in the region.

Le Parisien focuses on Libya - they've calculated the four month conflict there has already cost France 87 million euros.

And the French presidential election is still making headlines - Liberation focuses on the race to be the Europe Ecologie (Green) candidate, while le Figaro looks at the threats to Sarkozy from the right.
