Just retire, Mr Wade

International news heads up the front pages here in France - with headline calls for both Bashar al-Assad and Abdoulaye Wade to step down. We also look at new developments in the Karachigate corruption scandal - and more bad headlines for Nicolas Sarkozy.

Liberation leads on Syria - saying Assad must go, but that doesn't necessarily mean he will.

Le Monde calls on Senegalese president Abdoulaye Wade to step down on its front page.

Le Parisien has an exclusive revelation about the Karachigate scandal - continuing to discredit the idea it was an Islamic terrorist attack, and pointing the finger more and more towards kickbacks from French arms deals.

Le Canard Enchaîné says India might have agreed to buy 126 French planes, but Nicolas Sarkozy is still on an ejector seat - Le Figaro finds a silver lining, though, saying he still has some advantages against François Hollande.
