Rwanda genocide report: 'irrefutable'
The papers today look at a French judicial investigation into the Rwandan genocide, as well as one of the issues in the current presidential campaign - tax breaks for families. And there's a report that judges want to check Sarkozy's campaign accounts for 2007. That's the focus for this Wednesday, 11th January 2012.
Libération leads on its front page: “Rwandan genocide – irrefutable”. An investigation by a French judge concludes the weapons that brought down the plane of the late Rwandan President Juvénal Habyarimana in April 1994 were fired from a military camp belonging to his Presidential Guard.
Le Figaro leads on that, too, saying the Socialist Party candidate has made another “couac” (false note) in his campaign.
