German elections: 'Chancellery thriller' as both major parties claim victory

IN THE PRESS – Monday, September 27, 2021: German tabloid Bild compares Germany's election results to a suspenseful crime novel, with both the SPD and the CDU claiming a mandate to form the next government. French paper Libération fears long negotiations in Germany could lead to "European paralysis". In the UK, papers decry "petrol pump chaos" amid a major fuel shortage caused by a lack of truck drivers. Plus, we discover the baker of this year's best Parisian baguette and learn about a wild boar invasion in Rome.
