IN THE PRESS

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 : 2012-04-25

'Absolutely illegal'

James Murdoch's testimony to the Leveson inquiry dominates our look at the international press - as we find out more about the information passed between the Murdoch family and the British government.

The Guardian and the Independent have both been to Liberia and Sierra Leone - to find out what his victims think of Charles Taylor's trial; his verdict is due tomorrow at The Hague.

The papers' front pages, though, are only concerned with one man - James Murdoch, who yesterday told the Leveson inquiry that he did discuss the BskyB takeover bid with David Cameron, and that his office did get confidential information on Ofcom's deliberations from the minister responsible, Jeremy Hunt.
