IN THE PRESS – Tuesday, October 20, 2020: After Monday's tributes to slain teacher Samuel Paty, Tuesday's French papers dive into what Libération calls the government's "radical" response to radical Islam. Catholic paper La Croix focuses on the "Islamist grey zone" - people who could be considered complicit in violence for publicly sharing militant views. We also look at the thwarting of a Russian cyberattack on the Olympic Games, which papers say was revenge for doping allegations. And the Quebecois town of Asbestos changes its name to the less toxic Val-des-Sources.
