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 : 2012-02-23

The hell that is Homs

Syria's the focus for today's French papers - after the deaths of two Western journalists, including a French photographer, on Tuesday. We also look at Nicolas Sarkozy's plan to cut unemployment, and the charges facing Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Liberation's Jean-Pierre Perrini reports from Homs - where he was alongside murdered journalists Remi Ochlik and Marie Colvin - saying the deaths of Western journalists may make headlines, but what Syrians are suffering is equally appalling.

Le Figaro focuses on Sarkozy's speech yesterday - saying the poll gap between him and François Hollande is narrowing - while les Echos says he's trying to put the image of the bling bling president behind him, and not really suceeding.

Le Parisien says Dominique Strauss Kahn could soon face corruption charges over the prostitution ring he's accused of being involved with, and reminds us he also still faces a civil trial in New York.
