'From Jupiter to Colbert': France's nationalisation of shipyard draws criticism

IN THE FRENCH PAPERS, Fri. 28.07.17: Emmanuel Macron's decision to nationalise France's biggest shipyard receives mixed reactions. Catholic paper La Croix says the move will help protect jobs. Business daily Les Echos, however, argues it sends a bad signal to businesses. We end with France's proposal to set up hotspots in Libya to process asylum seekers. Le Figaro hails the measure as a step in the right direction, but Libération warns it is unrealistic, as Libya remains crippled by instability.
