France 24's journalists bring you a round-up of what's in the international press.

Le Parisien
Le lanceur de chaussures est devenu un héros
Shoe-thrower becomes hero

The French daily reports on protests in Iraq for the liberation of Muntadar al-Zaidi, the journalist detained after throwing his shoes at George W. Bush. The 29-year old local TV reporter has swiftly achieved iconic status among the Iraqi resistance.

Guardian
Act now, or Congo could be Rwanda all over again
An editorial in the UK daily rails against European “shilly-shallying” on sending troops to the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Author Giles Foden says the price of failing to act could be a repeat of the Rwandan genocide.

Libération
Mladic, brouillon de capture
Rehearsing Mladic’s capture

The French daily reports on increased activity in the hunt for Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect Ratko Mladic. Snaring Radovan Karadzic’s right hand man would be a major boost to Serbia’s goal of EU membership.

Moscow Times
Skinheads Sentenced for Murder Spree
The English-language daily details the trial of seven skinheads, given up to 20 years in jail for a series of racist attacks in the Russian capital. The case of the group, who filmed some of their crimes, is the latest in a series of incidents which have highlighted racist violence in the former USSR.

Independent
Easter Island statue to make a pilgrimage to Paris
The UK paper brings news of one of Easter Island’s legendary statues, on its way to Paris as part of an anti-materialist mission. Luxury goods maker Louis Vuitton is covering the transport costs!
