Banning farts: more important than gay rights in Malawi

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Thurs., 10/2/2011: Many US hospitals are banning smokers (not just smoking) in the workplace; Japan is cracking down on pornographic manga comics...and Malawi is seeking to ban public farting!

We open with The Guardian's which reveals Egyptian Army involvement in torture and detentions.
