"Thailand on the brink of civil war"

In today’s international press review, we focus on the grenade blasts that hit Thailand overnight.

Violence in Thailand has made the front page of several international newspapers including The Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Nation.
The Bangkok Post says the ongoing tension could eventually trigger a civil war.
 
In other news, Great Britain’s second televised election debate took palce last night. According to The Guardian, the Lib-Dem leader Nick Clegg has scored a second success.
 
For The Independent, it no longer seems like a political debate... “This time it’s personal”, says the paper. A media war seems to have started in the UK, as the Independent accuses The Sun of censoring a poll that showed support for Clegg.
 
And finally, The Times reports about the world’s first face transplant, and the Gazet Van Antwerpen talks about a mistake in Chili’s television network. Playboy TV was accidentally broadcast instead of the Disney Channel.
