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 : 2015-02-05

'Apartheid in France'

Join us for this Thursday's look at the French papers. There is politics - Hollande is holding a major press conference - and a look at the foreign pages. One Le Monde piece reports on a monument being inaugurated to the Yalta Conference of 70 years ago in Crimea.

Libération asks: How to abolish apartheid in France? It does so as attention focuses on social divisions in France following last month's Paris attacks. That and other subjects will be raised as President François Hollande holds his six-monthly meeting with the press this Thursday. He's expected to outline measures to extend civic service and the teaching of French in schools. Later in the month, he will present measures on combatting racism and anti-Semitism.
