The campaign beat

Arson bid hits Marine Le Pen's campaign headquarters

The campaign headquarters of the far-right National Front party was the target of an arson attempt in the early hours of Thursday morning. A group called "Fight against Xenophobia" has claimed responsibility for the attack, prompting the party’s candidate Marine Le Pen to slam the government for not being tough enough on radical leftist movements. We also find out that if Socialist candidate Benoît Hamon had to choose to be any animal... he'd pick a goat!
