Europe invites itself to the French election

French politicians on both the left and right are worried voters will revolt over handing more budgetary power to Brussels, while the right-wing UMP party announces tougher penalties for young offenders, and Oscar Wilde's grave gets some protection from overenthusiastic tourists.

Le Figaro headlines on Syria - looking at Israel's fear that Bashar al-Assad's regime could be replaced by something less favourable to its interests.

Liberation headlines on fears on both the left and right of French politics that resolving the euro crisis will mean handing more power to Brussels - which will upset French voters across the board.

Le Monde accuses the ruling UMP party of substituting soundbites for law and order policy, as they announce tougher prison sentences for young offenders.

L'Humanité focuses on World Aids day - and the workplace discrimination suffered by the HIV positive.

Liberation also reports Oscar Wilde is to get a new defence from overenthusiastic fans - a glass wall to stop people kissing his gravestone.
