'France remains a deeply racist country'
INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Fri. 23/03/12. The aftermath of the Toulouse drama is getting a lot of attention in the international press. Some dailies applaud the way Nicolas Sarkozy dealt with the crisis. But in The Independent, comment editor Adrian Hamilton is highly critical of the French president and says that although he has called for national unity, "France remains a deeply racist country".
Some articles from today’s international press review:
INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE: “Crisis puts Sarkozy in spotlight and shakes up campaign”
WALL STREET JOURNAL (Europe): “Jihad in Toulouse”
JEUNE AFRIQUE: “Coup d'État in Mali”
