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 : 2013-04-26

Fast food... fourteen years in the making!

Opinion pieces in the international papers reflect on the conspiracy theories surrounding the Boston bombings, with a discussion on the links between terror and so-called fundamentalist Islam. Also, the New York Times heralds a meeting between Kosovar and Serbian leaders as a diplomatic coup. Finally, a 14-year old burger is found safe, sound and surprisingly fragrant!

The Guardian rounds up the most far-flung conspiracy theories surrounding the Boston bombings, while The Moscow Times says alienation is at the heart of the attack.

Writing in the New York Times, Catherine Ashton highlights the EU’s diplomatic success over Kosovo and Serbia, calling it an important fork in the road.

And forgotten for 14 years: a man uncovers a burger that has stood the test of time, and stands as chilling reminder of the power of preservatives.
