Tunisia: 'They want to kill the revolution'

Most French papers lead on Tunisia. L'Humanité argues democracy is at threat. Le Figaro urges a national unity government. And Libération has an interview with Faouzia Charfia, a member of the opposition Al-Joumhouri party, who says the ruling Islamist party Ennahda is responsible for the current political violence. That, and "Taubiramania" in France's gay marriage debate, are the focus.

LE MONDE:
