Sarkozy's 2007 campaign part-funded by Gaddafi?

A recording has emerged of Libya's former leader Muammar Gaddafi claiming in a 2011 interview that he helped Nicolas Sarkozy get elected by part-funding his 2007 campaign.

Finally, we look at examples of top-heavy local governance in France, plus the story of an Iranian teacher who became a hero for his gesture of solidarity with a sick student.
