France and Britain may share naval vessels

The Times of London reports this morning that Britain and France are planning to poll naval resources and share naval carriers. Elsewhere we look at reaction to an Iranian editorial calling Carla Bruni-Sarkozy a “prostitute”, this because of an open letter she wrote in defence of Sakineh Mohammed Ashtiani, the 43 year old Iranian mother of two sentenced to death by stoning for alleged adultery. These and other stories in today’s international press review: TUESDAY, 31st AUGUST 2010
