IN THE PAPERS – Friday, October 9, 2020: We start by taking a look at reactions in the French and African press to the release of French aid worker Sophie Pétronin and Malian opposition leader Soumaïla Cissé, who had both been held hostage by jihadists. We then turn to the US, where a foiled plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan has highlighted the dangers of private militias. Finally, we take a look at some of the most unusual dishes that were created during the pandemic.
