IN THE PRESS

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 : 2011-12-20

La Corée du mort

The French press asks what's next for North Korea after the death of Kim Jong-Il. We also look at whether the French are finally getting fed up of corruption scandals - and if that might start influencing the way they vote.

Liberation goes for some nice punning on its front page over the death of Kim Jong-Il - but inside reminds us it is not really a laughing matter, given the human rights abuses in North Korea.

Le Monde's style writers have not read that - they are asking why all dictators have such bad taste.

That paper also interviewed leftwing political star Arnaud Montebourg - who says French voters are finally getting fed up with corruption.

Le Parisien has far more serious matters in mind - a spate of oyster thefts that is sparked fears of a Christmas shortage.
