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 : 2011-11-23

'NATO is planning an intervention in Syria'

Egypt continues to dominate headlines, as the press asks if February's revolution really achieved anything, and what might come next. Le Canard Enchaîné claims French and British intelligence are already planning an intervention in Syria. Finally, we have a look at some of the worst sex scenes of the year.

The Guardian reminds us that in Febraury, Tahrir Square was chanting "The army and the people are one" and asks how things went so badly wrong.

Egyptian paper Al-Ahram explains why the generals must go - but the National says that could trigger chaos, and be hard for Egypt's foreign backers to stomach.

Le Canard Enchaîné reports that French and British intelligence officers are meeting with Syrian dissidents in Turley and Lebanon and preparing to train them.

The Independent looks at corruption in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the run-up to next week's elections.

Finally, don't read this Huffington Post article over lunch - it's full of gory quotes from the year's worst literary sex scenes.
