Violence erupts in France ahead of Sunday's presidential election, as protesters come out in force against National Front leader Marine Le Pen. Meanwhile, an activist jumps on stage in an attempted attack on the French presidential candidate, during one of her final rallies - forcing security to step in. A suicide attack on a bus convoy evacuating people from rebel-held areas in Syria draws little attention from the western media. While the reporting of some outlets raise questions, after the massacre is labelled a hiccup.
