Is it time for Tunisian women to cover up?

There's widespread alarmism in today's French papers about what an Islamist victory could mean for Tunisia - but there's also balanced analysis, as papers point out Ennadha are moderates, and the West doesn't have the right to dictate who will rule Tunisia.

Le Parisien has the morning's most sensationalist front page - warning about 'the shadow of Islamism' and showing a fully veiled woman.

La Croix is more balanced - pointing out Tunisians picked Ennadha for reasons other than religion.

Liberation asks if the two thirds of voters who picked secular parties will be left feeling uncomfortable with this result.

Meanwhile, French corruption in Africa is back in the headlines at website Mediapart - they interview a businessman who says pressure from Nicolas Sarkozy led to him getting 20 years in jail for false corruption allegations in Togo.
