Banon's mother: I slept with DSK

In Tuesday's French newspapers - another shocking development in the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case, as the mother of the French journalist accusing him of attempted rape admits that she too had sex with him. In other news, Martine Aubry's culture policy is under fire, and some investment advice from Le Parisien.

It's L'Express that gets today's headline exclusive - an interview with Anne Mansouret, mother of French journalist Tristane Banon, who is accusing Dominique Strauss-Kahn of attempted rape. Mansouret admits that she too had sex with him.

In other papers, Le Figaro reports that François Hollande is to face police questioning over the Banon case, while Liberation says his rival Martine Aubry is under fire over her culture policy.

Le Parisien, meanwhile, concentrates on the economy - and gives its readers investment advice.
