France's troubled suburbs: the same old story?

The escalating violence in France's suburbs is becoming a headache for the Socialist government. How can they tackle crime without mimicking what the previous conservative governments have done for the past 10 years? Also in the news: layoffs are continuing to pile up, mostly in French industry.

On the set:

  • Philip Turle, Jounalist, RFI;
  • Jean-Marc Gonin, Senior writer, Le Figaro Magazine.
