Inside Depardieu's Paris pad

Aujourd'hui-en-France/Le Parisien leads on the French republic's "hidden kitty". It reports that right-wing politicians are benefiting from a larger than fair share of a 15-million-euro reserve fund. Meanwhile, La Croix reports on a call by families of monks killed in Algeria in 1996 for the current investigation into the deaths to be speeded up. And Le Figaro looks inside Gérard Depardieu's 6th arrondissement apartment, now up for sale.

Aujourd'hui-en-France/Le Parisien: "Le pactole secret des parlementaires" ("The secret kitty for MPs and Senators")

La Croix: "Tibhirine, lettre ouverte to François Hollande" ("Open letter to François Hollande by victims of the 1996 Tibhirine killing of monks in Algeria")

Le Figaro: "A saisir rive gauche, l’hôtel particulier de Gérard Depardieu" ("Depardieu's luxury apartment up for sale")
