The cost of an election campaign

François Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy shook hands last night at a dinner for France's biggest Jewish lobbying organisation - but are their attempts to attract the Jewish electorate working? We also look at Eric Woerth - accused of illegal campaign financing - and how this year's candidates are paying for their campaigns.

Le Figaro headlines on the handshake between Sarkozy and Hollande - and their attempts to woo the Jewish electorate.

L'Humanité focuses on former budget minister Eric Woerth, under investigation for taking envelopes of cash from Liliane Bettencourt to pay for Sarkozy's 2007 campaign - while Le Monde looks at how this year's candidates are financing theirs.

Liberation headlines on Syria, notably accusing some right-wing elements of the French security services of continuing to support Bashar al-Assad.
