Areva goes into meltdown

The French nuclear giant Areva announces big losses and job cuts, worrying the papers who see the firm as a source of national prestige. We also talk about politics, as the number of presidential candidates on the right multiplies, and starts to worry Sarkozy.

Les Echos and Le Figaro both focus on fears for one of the industries on which France truly leads the world - nuclear energy, after Areva announced massive losses and imminent budget cuts.

Liberation says the number of candidates contesting the presidency from the right has multiplied - and is starting to worry the Elysée palace.

Le Figaro reports Socialist candidate François Hollande has had to admit he wouldn't bring the retirement age back down to 60 - disappointing supporters.

And Le Monde takes a look at the French farmer leading a David and Goliath legal fight against American biotech giant Monsanto.
