Campaign finance scandal gets closer to Sarkozy
Issued on: Modified:
There are more revelations about Mohamed Merah in today's French papers - but who edited his gruesome video and sent it to Al Jazeera? Police are looking for collaborators. We also look at the campaign finance scandal that is getting closer to Sarkozy.
Le Parisien looks at who else could have posted that memory stick to Al Jazeera - while Le Figaro has revelaions about Mohamed Merah's father.
Le Monde reveals that investigators in the Bettencourt case are getting closer to directly implicating Nicolas Sarkozy in illegal campaign finance.
The opinion polls, meanwhile, continue to disagree - Le Figaro has Sarkozy doing better, Liberation quite the opposite.
