Is the game up for Gaddafi?

In today's international papers - the game could be nearly up for Gaddafi, Indian feminists reclaim the word slut, and Iran's mullahs rage against decadent Western customs - like women showing their ankles, and men wearing jewellery.

The Guardian 's correspondents in Tripoli think the game is up for Gaddafi, but the Telegraph has embarrassing news for the London 2012 Olympic committee - they've awarded Libya a thousand tickets for top events.

The Independent is being sued by the Bahraini government over its hard-hitting coverage of protests there.

The International Herald Tribune looks at Indian feminists' attempt to bring the SlutWalk movement to Delhi.

And back in the Guardian, Iran's mullahs are cracking down on jewellery and men's haircuts.
