04 December 2019 | 1:02 pm
During a Buckingham Palace reception on the sidelines of the NATO summit, Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron and Boris Johnson appear to talk and joke about Donald Trump - without naming him - and a press conference he held earlier in the day.
The British prime minister is to face an immediate no-confidence vote, lawmakers within his Conservative Party say. Johnson has faced months of accusations over lockdown parties at his home and offices.
Johnson cannot face another leadership challenge from within his own party for at least a year after surviving a vote of no-confidence with the support of 211 out of 359 lawmakers.
Emmanuel Macron's alliance is in a tight race with the new left-wing union NUPES according to initial projections. Macron is predicted to win a greater number of districts which could grant him a parliamentary majority.
After choosing between the familiar faces on offer in April's presidential vote, the French legislative election campaign that followed seemed to many like a seven-week snoozefest. That was until Sunday night. Now, with the first round's ballots counted, Emmanuel Macron has just one week to convince voters to return a centrist majority to parliament for his second term as president. We break down the odds for next week's run-offs.
We take a look at the pressure facing Emmanuel Macron’s party as he tries to hold on to a parliamentary majority. US papers are discussing the second day of congressional hearings on the January 6, 2021 siege of the US Capitol.

Finally, we discuss the sexy side of cultural relics in Pompeii.
We take a look at how the press is covering the French, German and Italian leaders' visit to Kyiv. Meanwhile, French papers are largely divided over the country's upcoming legislative elections on Sunday. Also, Thailand gets closer to same-sex marriage legislation, while Saudi Arabia confiscates rainbow-coloured toys. Finally, the Washington Post debates whether QR code menus in restaurants should stay or go.
French President Emmanuel Macron is facing difficult negotiations after his centrist bloc lost its absolute majority in parliament. The conservatives have already ruled out forming a coalition.
After losing his parliamentary majority in elections over the weekend, French President Emmanuel Macron is set up for tough negotiations with opposition parties passing his reformist agenda.
French politics continues to dominate the papers as Emmanuel Macron desperately seeks an alliance to secure a parliamentary majority. The US Senate finds bipartisan support for new gun possession laws for the first time in 30 years. Organisers of the Miss France beauty pageant introduce radical new changes to shake up the contest. Finally, a man escapes his kidnappers by driving erratically on a highway in order to be stopped by authorities.
