Panda Prank

In today’s international press review, we talk about scientists who dress up as pandas to teach captive cubs survival skills. On a more serious note, we focus on the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and on tensions between the two Koreas.

The Guardian reports that Julian Assange is expected to be questioned by police in the UK today. According to the paper, the Wikileaks founder is expected to appear in Court to negotiate bail. Assange is accused of sexual assault in Sweden and could face extradition.
 
Meanwhile, Wikileaks reveals more secret diplomatic cables. The Wall Street Journal focuses on a senior Chinese official who once admitted that China’s local economic data was unreliable.
 
The International Herald Tribune also talks about deteriorating relations between Beijing and Washington, following North Korea’s attack on a South Korean island last month. The paper says China doesn’t seem willing to use its influence to convince its ally to end its provocations. The China Daily focuses on a phone conversation between US President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao.
 
And finally, some scientists believe fancy dress could help save the lives of endangered species! They have decided to wear panda suits in a bid to help captive cubs adapt to the outside world. Read more on this story in The Daily Mail.
