Papers bid farewell to Daft Punk, 'founders of la French Touch'

IN THE PRESS – Tuesday, February 23, 2021: Italian papers mourn ambassador Luca Attanasio, "the best of Italy," who was killed along with his bodyguard and driver in the DR Congo's North Kivu region. Guinean website Le Djely writes that the diplomat's death is a snub to both the DRC's president and the UN's MONUSCO mission. We also look at the Israeli government's gag order for media reporting on a recent massive oil spill and Algerian papers celebrating the Hirak movement's second anniversary protests. Plus, papers pay tribute to helmeted duo Daft Punk, who are splitting up after 28 years.
