Global interest in Hollande press conference
Issued on: Modified:
Several international news channels carried much of François Hollande's press conference today, eagerly anticipating the question and answer session that followed and the French president's reaction to last week's scandalous issue of "Closer" magazine. The glossy weekly alleged Hollande is having an affair with actress Julie Gayet. His response to journalists' questions was - as expected - minimalist, with the president insisting on a strict division between his public and private life.
