Latest update : 2010-12-06

MP’s assistant or sexy Russian spy ?

In today’s international press review, we focus on Katia Zatuliveter. The 25 year old MP’s assistant is accused of being a spy for Russia. If these allegations are true, it would be the first time a Russian spy infiltrates the British Parliament since the Cold War. Also in the papers: Wikileaks’ latest revelation and political unrest in Ivory Coast.

The Presidential race is far from over in Ivory Coast. Both Laurent Gbagbo and opposition candidate Alassane Ouattara have claimed victory. Most international newspapers seem to be in his favour.
 
The local newspaper Le Nouveau Réveil doesn’t mince its words : “First Gbagbo compared himself to Moses, now he thinks he’s Napoleon. Like him, Gbadgo took the crown and declared himself leader…”
 
On the other hand, the Ivorian net describes the situation as an “international plot against the President”.
 
In other news, Wikileaks revealed more US secret embassy cables. The leak shows key places around the world that the United States fears could be targeted by terrorists. According to The Times and The Daily Telegraph, the latest leak could lead to accusations that Wikileaks “doesn’t care if it aids terrorists.”
 
And finally, a British MP’s assistant is accused of being a Russian spy. The MI5 wants Katia Zatuliveter deported. Read more about this story in The Guardian and The Daily Mail.
