Libération draws fire for putting rumour on its front page

FRENCH PAPERS, Weds. 08/04/13: Left-leaning Libération causes a stir by claiming the Elysée Palace is in a panic over rumours that another minister could have a secret bank account in Switzerland...and that would be Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. Fabius has strongly denied these claims. It’s unclear why Libération would decide to put an unconfirmed rumour on its front page.
