“It’s tough being Israel’s best friend”

The international press is still largely leading with the Monday’s botched raid on a flotilla aiming to deliver aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip. We focus on the complications for the US of close relations with Israel, the communications battle online between Israel and media on board the flotilla as well as calls for the end of the blockade. We also look at the final moments of the latest information on the plane crash in which Polish President Lech Kaczynski perished. WEDNESDAY, 2nd JUNE 2010
