"The Greek bailout is needed by the end of May", Hollande said , "or Greece will have no other choice but to go into default."

Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Francois Hollande sat down with Russia's Vladimir Putin this Friday to try and craft a peaceful solution to the Ukraine crisis. Not only the situation over Ukraine is hurting Russia-West relationship, it also splits Europe from the US, since Europe is taking a soft stand while America is pressing for firmer actions against Russia to force Putin to stop supporting Ukrainian rebels and return Crimea to Ukraine. The result of the talks so far? Merkel and Hollande returned back Saturday empty-handed. We don't have decent photos from this meeting, so instead we ask you to

Socialist challenger Francois Hollande beat Nicolas Sarkozy in the first round of France's presidential election Sunday.
As expected, Hollande and the wounded right-wing incumbent will now face off in the May 6 second-round. The first opinion poll after the first round said that Hollande would beat Sarkozy by 54 percent to 46 in the second round.
Despite Sakrozy still hoping to turn the tide in this election, Francois Hollande will likely become the next French president. While Hollande is well known in France, he's relatively unknown to the rest of the world. In this contest, let's tell the world a bit more about Francois Hollande - e.g. show his little known hobbies, and show some little known facts from his past, what skeletons he may have in his closet, or what he may (or may not) do once he becomes the next French president.
