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 : 2012-02-22

"Greece is now independent in name only"

There's widespread sympathy for Greece in today's international papers - and fears the new bailout has at best put default off by a couple of months. We also look at reports the UK plans to attack al-Qaeda training camps in Somalia.

Kathimerini says Greek politicians still haven't risen to the crisis they are facing - they need  to up their game.

El Pais also focuses on emerging political divisions in Greece - while the New York Times says that even for the bankers, this bailout's a disaster.

The Guardian exclusively reports that the UK is planning to bomb al-Qada training camps in Somalia.
