Edouard Balladur and the mysterious 10 million francs

More French corruption scandals in today's papers - as we find out a bit more about where the 10 million francs in cash which made their way into Edouard Balladur's campaign accounts in 1995 came from. Meanwhile, those rumours of a plot to frame Dominique Strauss-Kahn just won't go away.

Le Parisien headlines on Edouard Balladur's mysterious 10 million francs in cash, which turned up in his bank account during the 1995 presidential campaign - they reckon they know where the money came from.

Liberation isn't happy about Nicolas Sarkozy's campaign expenses - they reckon he's wasting public money.

Le Figaro says the Socialist party has declared war on Germany - after François Hollande said he wouldn't accept any consolidation of eurozone budgets.

And Dominique Strauss-Kahn delivers his version of what happened that fateful morning in the Sofitel in a new book - and the papers have plenty to say about that too.
