Live from the newsroom, France 24's Oliver Farry provides an overview of stories making French newspaper headlines.
The Panama Papers, the biggest data leak in history, have been revealed by a consortium of international media, which unearthed links to political figures, celebrities, athletes and organised crime.
The data leak came from an anonymous source who accessed 2.6 Terabytes of files from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. It was originally sent to the German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung and has implicated hundreds of people, including Iceland's prime minister, former UEFA president Michel Platini and football star Lionel Messi.
