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 : 2013-02-22

Beauty and her 'anonymous' beast

Beauty and the beast... or the writer and the politician. One woman tells her story of a high-profile affair with none other than Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Also, as the French military hands over to Malian troops on the ground, the newspapers take a look at the consequences in the north of the country. And as France prepares to celebrate the crème de la crème of cinema at the Césars awards, the papers look at the state of the film industry.

Libération are headlining on what they call "a dangerous liaison" between Marcela Iacub, a writer and academic, and an unnamed man whose identity is no longer a mystery. She is publishing a book detailing her affair with Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Le Figaro takes a look at the consequences of the French military intervention in Mali, with an article on drug trafficking routes in the region, while Libération examines what they call "arbitrary" arrests by the Malian army in the north of the country.

And France’s version of the Oscars - the Césars - prompts a flurry of articles, on the super pay packets of French actors, the rise and rise of Parisian films, and the uncertain fate of Luc Besson’s studio complex in the north of Paris.
