A presidential nightmare

FRENCH PAPERS, Friday 05/04/13. There are plenty of scandals for the French press to chew over this Friday. The left-leaning Libération calls the French president "a man under siege" following a series of tax haven scandals; Le Figaro judges that François Hollande is at a "dead end" and must act to stem the tide of public anger; and Le Monde reveals the world’s 96 tax havens that could be concealing more than 20 trillion euros...tax free.
