IN THE PRESS – Friday, May 28, 2021: We start with a Rwandan paper hailing Emmanuel Macron's decision to ask for forgiveness for France's role in the 1994 genocide, even though he stopped short of apologising.

We finish with a look at reactions to Joe Biden's decision to probe the theory that Covid-19 was leaked from a lab in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
