DSK: the secret double life

Dominique Strauss-Kahn is back on those front pages - and it turns there are still plenty of things we didn't know about him. Today, we look at revelations he had a special hotline to pimps, and orgies at international economic summits. Also, Sarkozy attacks benefit cheats, and the Greens and Socialists bury the hatchet.

L'Express magazine has the details of the secret life of Dominique Strauss-Kahn when he was head of the IMF: the pimps, the orgies, and the sex hotline.

Liberation focuses on Nicolas Sarkozy's war on "millions" of benefit cheats, while L'Humanité questions if they actually exist.

La Croix also points out that the French social security system has a 13-million-euro hole in it - and talks about ways it could be filled.

Le Figaro meanwhile headlines on the Socialists' promise to scrap half of France's nuclear reactors to keep the Greens happy - unsurprisingly, they're not keen.
