Issued on: Modified:
IN THE FRENCH PAPERS - Monday, August 1: Some French papers are looking at the symbolism of Sunday's interfaith mass services across France in honour of Father Jacques Hamel, slain by jihadists last week. Can this religious harmony last? Libération is looking at Turkey's continuing purges and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's growing closeness to Vladimir Putin. Meanwhile, François Hollande is heading to Rio this week where he'll be on a campaign to plug Paris for the 2024 Summer Games.
