It is already back to school and a week undoubtedly rushed. All the more reason to disconnect on Saturdays and Sundays too. To get back to the news on Monday, here is your essential news summary.
1- Non-standard and high-risk trial for the attacks of November 13
For some, it is already “the trial of the century”. Almost six years after the terrorist attacks, the trial of the attacks of November 13, 2015 is due to start on Wednesday September 8 within the confines of the Paris Court of Appeal, on the Île de la Cité. It took two full years to organize this hearing. A room was built for the occasion and the risk of an attack during the trial is high.
2 – Another draw for the Blues with Ukraine-France (and a sluggish match)
Not famous. And even worrying. This is the first time in their history that the Blues have conceded five consecutive draws, after a sluggish match in Ukraine, where almost nothing happened in the first half and not much in the second either, despite a strike on the post of Diaby at the very end of the match (1-1). We expect much better Tuesday against Finland. With a much stronger defense.
3- No vaccination for children (for the moment)
While some are demonstrating against the health pass with signs “Hands off our children”, the director general of health Jerome Salomon this Sunday ruled out the hypothesis of vaccination of children under 12, for the moment. He indicated that the priority was the vaccination of 12 years and over and pointed out the lack of scientific studies on the subject. He also stressed that the fourth wave of the epidemic was evolving “favorably since the number of cases has been reduced by 20% in one week”.
4- Mandatory and single-sex niqab for female students in Afghanistan
End of co-education in private universities in Afghanistan. Women should wear a black abaya, a wide veil covering the body and a niqab that covers the face and reveals the eyes. The Taliban regime has also specified that universities will have to “recruit female teachers for female students”, or attempt to recruit “elderly teachers” whose morals have been scrutinized.
When the Taliban first came to power, between 1996 and 2001, the single sex rule had prevented almost all women from studying.

5- Arnaud Montebourg formalizes his candidacy for the 2022 presidential election and promises France a “remount”
Former socialist minister, Arnaud Montebourg declared himself a candidate for the presidency of the Republic on Saturday for the election next April. From his hometown of Clamecy (Nièvre), he promised the French a “remount” between 2022 and 2027.
He declined this ascent (remounted in Spanish) “in five years, from 2022 to 2027”, in several axes: industrial reconstruction, rise in wages, 6th Republic, “France without oil” in 20 years, “republican severity” or even “return to the land”. For a political line which wants to be “a synthesis between the right and the left”.
That’s it for tonight. We wish you a good evening, a good night and see you Monday.
