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 : 2011-11-24

'Every time the army fires a shot, the people become more determined'

Police violence in Egypt is the focus of today's press review - alongside what a national unity government might actually mean. We also look at Yemen and Bahrain, and why South African newspapers are up in arms over a censorship law.

The Guardian has a first person account of what it's like to be tear gassed in Tahrir Square - while the Daily Beast analyses why the police have turned so violent.

Al-Ahram looks at how a national unity government might be formed - and the Arabist has a handy chart to help you see where the parties stand.

The Washington Post compares Yemen and Bahrain - saying we shouldn't get too excited about change in either - while the National is more optimistic, saying Saleh's resignation could be a new dawn.

The Guardian calls South Africa's new security law - which newspapers there call censorship - a return to the days of apartheid.

And la Repubblica reveals the witness list for Silvio Berlusconi's underage sex trial - George Clooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and 33 glamour models.
