The tragedy that shattered France

France's newspapers mourn the deaths of three children and an adult in a shooting outside a Jewish school in Toulouse yesterday.


Liberation has simply a black front page with the names of those killed - inside they say it's too early to analyse, but politicians should be careful about the language they use to talk about race and religion.

La Croix also says politicians should not try to capitalise on this - and some of them have said things that could inflame a right-wing extremist.

And Le Figaro says they all need to take a moment of reflection and work out how best to protect ethnic minorities.
