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.

Some articles from today’s look at the French papers:

L'HUMANITE:  'Ils veulent tuer la révolution'

LE FIGARO EDITORIAL:
'La Tunisie, miroir des dérives du Printemps Arabe' 'Tunisia mirrors 'Arab Spring' drift'

LIBERATION:
'Ennahda tente de s'imposer comme un pouvoir totalitaire' 'Ennahda seeking totalitarian power'

LE MONDE:
'Mariage gay, le naufrage d'un débat' 'Gay marriage debate sinks to lows'

LE PARISIEN-AUJOURD'HUI-EN-FRANCE:
'Taubira transfigurée' 'Justice Minister Christiane Taubira transfigured'
