François Hollande: 'Normal politics is moral politics'

In Tuesday's French papers - Socialist presidential candidate François Hollande makes a plea for more moral politics, the sometimes thin line between cops and robbers, and the persecution of Roma people in Eastern Europe.

Five days away from the Socialist primary, front-runner François Hollande sets out his stall in Liberation - as the anti-corruption candidate.

Les Echos asks if there's space in the election campaign for a centrist candidate - and who it might be.

Le Parisien looks at the case of Lyon supercop-turned-drug trafficker Michel Neyret.

Le Figaro moves beyond France to look at the persecution suffered by Roma people in Bulgaria - while l'Humanité says they're being forced to do hard labour in Hungary.
