Happy Earth Day

In today’s international press review, we look at the aftermaths of Iceland’s volcano and we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the International Earth Day.

Hundreds of thousands of Europeans are still waiting to be repatriated, stranded because of Iceland’s volcanic ash cloud.
 
The British newspaper The Guardian says we should consider ourselves “lucky”.
It warns that in the future, an eruption could wipe out human race. The article recalls several previous eruptions that have changed the course of history.
 
In other news, Great Britain is getting ready for its second televised debate ahead of the general elections. Nick Clegg makes the front page of The Independent. The left-leaning newspaper describes him as humble and unmoved by fame.
However, the Daily Telegraph accuses Clegg of receiving payments from lib-dem donors. Money he allegedly received in his personal bank account. Clegg has denied the allegations.
 
Meanwhile, Belgium could soon become the first European nation to ban the full Islamic veil. The French newspaper Libération covers this story and talks about an “express ban”.
 
In the US, the creators of South Park have been warned by an Islamic group to stop mocking Prophet Muhammed. Read more in the New York Daily News.

And finally, today marks the 40th anniversary of International Earth Day. The Times of India says more should be done to tackle global warming and environment problems. USA today introduces us to Evie. The Labrador is the mascot of this year’s Earth Day.
