Issued on: Modified:
The French presidential election is looking increasingly like a daytime soap opera. Conservative François Fillon is again in the spotlight, as he and his wife will likely face legal proceedings for graft. While Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo is at it again, now with plans to redesign the famous "Champ de Mars" park. The protests in Paris's suburbs are dividing opinion: Le Figaro warns the violence could spread to other cities, while communist paper L'Humanité praises the young people's courage.
