Fort Hood suspect: "He prayed everyday"

In today’s international press review, we look at the Fort Hood shooting where twelve American soldiers reportedly died.

 

It has made most front pages of American newspapers: the army psychiatrist, who allegedly opened fire on fellow soldiers.
 
Nidal Malik Hasan reportedly killed twelve people at the army base of Fort Hood, in Texas.
 
The Huffington Post says Muslim and Arab groups are “bracing for a backlash”. According to the blog, they fear a wave of anger, after people learnt that the suspect was a Muslim.
 
Some have reportedly received threatening phone calls. Many gave a series of press conferences to denounce the shooting, and to urge the population to stay calm.
 
The Washington Post refers to Hasan’s personal life, and reports in a Silver Spring mosque, where the suspect used to pray.
 
In other news, the British newspaper The Guardian reveals the existence of a secret report, written by the UN’s nuclear watchdog to Iran.
 
 
We also look at the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, which reacts to Mahmoud Abbas’ decision no to stand in the next Presidential elections.
 
And finally, find out how an unseen Charlie Chaplin movie ended on E-bay.
