Issued on: Modified:
FRENCH PAPERS - Mon. 2.1.17: The French papers reflect on the "cycle of violence" in Turkey following the New Year's attack in Istanbul. And the son of Equatorial Guinea's president goes on trial in Paris: Teodorin Obiang is accused of using the nation's oil money to purchase a swanky Parisian apartment. He is the first foreign leader to be pursued in France for "ill-gotten gains." Also, Marine Le Pen borrows money from her dad and French workers gain the right to "disconnect".
