“Saving America from bigotry”

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Thursday, 9th September 2010: American papers continue to criticise Pastor Terry Jones’ plans to burn the Koran on 9/11. We also look at one atheist’s positive view of religion in The Times, despite negative examples of religious fundamentalism as displayed by Jones. Elsewhere, we look at research showing vitamins can help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease and a report claiming a quarter of translators working with US troops in Afghanistan can’t speak the local languages.
