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 : 2011-09-09

'Kicked and punched to death by cowards'

In today's international papers, a damning report condemns systemic failures in the British army for covering up the killing of an Iraqi civilian. We also take a look at media reactions to Obama's jobs plan and other stories in today's press.

The Huffington Post congratulates Obama on coming out fighting on the economy, while the Daily Beast says his plans are not new and will not work.

The Independent's Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk says that a systemic culture of lies in the British army covered up the death of Baha Moussa for years - and is still covering other atrocities.

Haaretz has strong words for Netanyahu and the Guardian takes a look at a fossil that could change our understanding of human evolution.
