INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Tues., 15/2/2011: As unrest spreads outward from Egypt and Tunisia to Algeria, Iran and beyond, we look at the role the internet has had in ‘sparking revolution’. The Wall Street Journal looks at the role of the internet in giving a voice to seemingly insignificant people. Have we moved into a “mall-person era of history”? Also, new details indicate that the Khodorkovsky trial in Moscow was fixed and we look at “animal attraction” post-Valentine’s Day!

As unrest spreads outward from Egypt and Tunisia to Algeria, Iran and beyond, we look at the role the internet has had in ‘sparking revolution’. The Wall Street Journal looks at the role of the internet in giving a voice to seemingly insignificant people. Have we moved into a “mall-person era of history”? The Guardian looks at the role of demographics in driving restlessness in the Arab world. Also, new details indicate that the Khodorkovsky trial in Moscow was fixed and we look at “animal attraction” post-Valentine’s Day!

Links to some of the articles in today’s international press review:
  • The Guardian: “Young Arabs who can't wait to throw off shackles of tradition”
  • The Guardian: “Mikhail Khodorkovsky verdict ordered from above, claims judge's assistant”
  • The Times: “Salesman and his bird prove love isn’t always a wild goose chase”
