IN THE PAPERS

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 : 2011-12-21

France and Turkey set for diplomatic crisis

In today's French papers, there are exclusive reports from inside Syria. We look at why French MPs have decided to really upset Ankara. There is a scandal over poisonous breast implants, and joy for Paris Saint-Germain fans as David Beckham signs on the dotted line.

La Croix carries an exclusive report from inside Syria - on one young photographer's week with the dissidents.

Le Figaro headlines with French MPs rather undiplomatic decision to vote on a law confirming the 1915 Armenian massacre was genocide - something sure to infuriate Turkey at a strategically key moment.

Liberation says 30 thousand women are being ordered by the government to get their breast implants removed as they could be poisonous - but victims are furious that the state will not pay for reconstruction.

La Canard Enchaîné reports that someone hired a private investigator to spy on former Areva CEO Anne Lauvergeon - and claims that the Elysée is behind it.

Le Parisien's got the biggest news though, claiming David Beckham has signed on the dotted line for PSG.
