All for one, and one for a thousand

Emotional pictures of Gilad Shalit's reunion with his family make all the French front pages - but they're also looking at the diplomatic consequences. There are also plenty of French scandals - police have questioned the head of the intelligence service over phone tapping, and they'd like to question Dominique Strauss Kahn over links to a prostitution ring.

Liberation looks at just why Israel was prepared to hand over so many prisoners for just one man.

Le Figaro looks at what advantage Egypt hopes to get from this.

Le Monde looks at a very French scandal - the head of the intelligence service, who's been questioned for tapping journalists' phones.

There's another of those in Le Figaro - Dominique Strauss Kahn, who's now been linked to a prostitution ring.

And Le Parisien reveals the route for this year's Tour de France.
