"More violence hits Pakistan and Afghanistan"

In today’s international press review, we look at Taliban attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The front page of the Pakistani newspaper The Nation, shows a gripping photo of yesterday’s car bomb attack that killed at least a hundred people.

 
Another local paper The Dawn, wonders how bad it will get “before it gets better”.
 
It accuses the Pakistani government of not taking enough measures to counter terrorism.
 
The finger is currently pointed at Taliban insurgents, but according to the Pakistani newspaper The News, both the Taliban and Al Qaeda have claimed they are not behind yesterday’s attack.
 
In Afghanistan, just a few days away from the presidential elections, violence continues to spread.
 
The International Herald Tribune published an editorial by the former UN deputy envoy in Afghanistan.
 
He was reportedly fired for trying to raise an issue: that is, there are more than 1,000 ghost polling centers in the country. Centers, he says do not exist, yet authorities continue to regard them as legitimate.
 
According to the editorial, fraud will occur in the upcoming second round just as it did in the first.
 
We also look at the Nimrod Crash, that has made the front page of most British newspapers, including The Guardian, the Independent and the Daily Telegraph.
 
In the United States, the economic crisis has forced community colleges to give classes at midnight.
 
And finally, find out the true reason why you are a bad driver. According to the Daily Mail, scientists say you can blame on your genes.
