Migrants, Islam, independence: Top French presidential candidates clash in 1st TV debate

During France’s first presidential debate on Monday, the leading five French presidential hopefuls traded punches on the most burning issues, ranging from immigration and Islamization, to the country’s alliances and its very sovereignty.
