'French presidential front-runner declares war on rich'

French presidential candidate François Hollande gets his first serious attention in the international press today - as some of Britain's papers worry he might have leant too far to the left. We're also talking about Yemen, Egypt and of course Newt Gingrich.

The Guardian is thrilled with François Hollande's promise to attack the financial industry - saying he's shown he's got the clout to take on Nicolas Sarkozy.

The Times though is pretty alarmed - worrying he's returning to the politics of class war.

In the Middle East, Gulf News and the National both discuss whether it's right to give outgoing Yemeni president Saleh immunity from prosecution - and al Masry al Youm looks at the lessons learnt from a year of Egyptian revolution.

The US papers are trying to work out why Newt Gingrich did so well - the New York Times says it's a definitive change in Republican politics, whereas for the Daily Beast it comes down to charisma.
