Peugeot plant to close; 8, 000 jobs will go with it

The French papers focus on the future of the country’s economy, from factory closures to ratifying a European fiscal treaty. Same-sex marriage is also a cause for debate, and a creeping Islamic influence in Tunisia grabs headlines in L'Humanité.

Le Figaro reports François Hollande has accepted that the Aulnay Peugeot plant has to close, after a government-commissioned report says 8,000 jobs will have to be slashed.

 
The paper also takes a look at conditions for Roms living in Romania, as French interior minister Manuel Valls visits the country.
 
The front page of the Catholic paper La Croix is – for a second day running – focusing on a draft law to legalize same-sex marriage, as well as the debate surrounding adoption and artificial insemination.
 
L’Humanité, the Communist paper, is headlining on the situation in Tunisia and how Islamists are wielding their influence in both society and government.
