Not a very happy anniversary for Hollande

French papers mark François Hollande’s first year in office with a less-than-glowing report card, highlighting the president’s plummeting popularity. Elsewhere, the fate of Syrians living in Aleppo is on the front page, two years after the city was engulfed by sectarian violence. And an arms cache uncovered... in a bin in Paris! One homeless man discovered a curious collection of weapons.

French daily Le Figaro is not wishing François Hollande a happy aniversary, with an editorial on his failure not only in France, but also in Europe.

Les Echoes goes through his shortcomings with a fine-tooth comb, providing the facts and figures that have dented his popularity and the big issues that have dominated his first year in office.

Libération takes a closer look at life in Aleppo, where they say residents have been abandoned by the international community.

And a man uncovers an unexpected collection of weapons - in a bin! Le Parisien has the story.
