Can anyone beat the All Blacks?

Friday's French papers are very excited about the Rugby World Cup kicking off today in New Zealand - they also look at the tenth anniversary of 9/11, and a corruption scandal in Marseille that's embarrassing the socialist party.

Le Figaro has an exclusive letter from Barack Obama  who says relations between the US and the Arab world have never been as good as they are now, ten years after 9/11.

Liberation takes a look at Jean-Noel Guerini, the socialist regional president of the Marseille region. He's being investigated for corruption, in an embarrassing development for the Socialist Party.

And Le Parisien is so excited about the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand  that it is teaching its readers to do the haka.
