Charlie Sheen v Muammar Gaddafi

INTERNATIONAL PAPERS, Wed., 2/3/2011: Charlie Sheen’s public meltdown is the big topic of discussion in the US media over the past 24 hours after a string of interviews with one crazy quote after another. The Guardian has come up with a quiz: Charlie Sheen v Muammar Gaddafi… who said what?! Also, Robert Fisk reports from the border between Libya and Tunisia while Gaddafi’s son (as the German Defence Minister!) is accused of plagiarizing his doctoral thesis.
