Obama has Irish roots

US President Barack Obama is starting his six day tour across Europe. First stop: Ireland, a country dealing with massive government debt... A country that was also home to one of Obama’s ancestors.

The Irish Times reports about Obama’s 24 hour visit in Ireland. Locals in Moneygall are eager to see the President, whose third great-grandfather is reportedly from that village.
 
It’s Obama’s first official visit abroad since the death of Bin Laden and security forces are on high alert. According to The Belfast Telegraph, safety measures are estimated at one billion dollars.
 
Meanwhile in Syria, The Independent paints the portrait of a man who has become the symbol of the uprising. Via the internet, Ahmad Biasi put his life in danger to prove that the regime was lying about the oppression.
 
In other news, a key witness is due to appear in court against an alleged accomplice, accused of taking part in the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The Washington Post wonders if David Headly’s testimony will confirm doubts over Pakistan’s “double game” in the fight against terrorism.
 
And finally, The Independent questions privacy laws in Great Britain, following the leak of the name of a footballer on Twitter that defies a super-injunction.
