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 : 2012-11-22

'C'est what? French TV in English'

We look at Israeli and Arab press reaction to the truce in Gaza. There's also coverage of a breakthrough in science that suggests yawning patterns of babies in the womb during pregnancy could help doctors monitor normal development. The Chinese, meanwhile, are going to build the world's tallest building in 90 days. And a Paris cop heads to the Eiffel Tower to investigate a murder. The biggest mystery: why is he speaking in English?

The Jerusalem Post's main analysis piece says 'the military operation has ended, the election campaign is beginning'.

An op-ed saying in Ynet News says 'the truth must be told' - 'Hamas will decide how long the lull will last'.

The pan-Arab paper based in London, Al-Hayat, says Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood government has emerged as the political 'winner' at this point.

The Guardian in the UK agrees, headlining: 'Egypt's president is the biggest winner'.

The Guardian also reports that monitoring a baby's yawns in the tummy during pregnancy could help doctors monitor normal development of children in the womb.

Another UK paper - The Independent - says China is going to build the world's tallest building in just 90 days.

And The Wall Street Journal Europe headlines: "C'est What? French TV in English". It looks at several new TV shows being shot in English here in France.
