IN THE PAPERS

Latest update : 2011-11-25

Where have all the Trotskyists gone?

Angela Merkel's refusal to allow the ECB to act as lender of last resort makes French front pages today - as do the kidnapping of two French citizens in Mali, a debate over whether foreigners should be allowed to vote in local elections, and the mysterious disappearance of the French far left.

La Tribune headlines with "the unlikely menage à trois" of Angela Merkel, Nicolas Sarkozy and Mario Monti - while les Echos isn't happy with the truce they've reached over the European Central Bank.

Le Figaro leads with the shadow of al Qaeda behind the kidnapping of two French citizens in Mali.

And La Croix reports on the debate over voting rights for foreigners - while Liberation asks what happened to France's once powerful far left.
