A Greek tragedy repeating itself as farce?

Greece's near-collapse makes the headlines from Athens to Berlin, while the Spanish papers are asking if their own anti-cuts protesters went too far in blocking access to the Catalan parliament. Elsewhere, the New York Times takes an exclusive look at Pakistan, and gurus in India may be making a profit from their fight against corruption.

The Greek paper Kathimerini says its government has descended into a political farce - whereas in Germany Die Welt says it's all just too predictable.

In Spain El Pais says anti-cuts protesters have gone too far - while they defend themselves in El Mundo.

The New York Times says Pakistan's colonels may be plotting a coup against the head of the army - for being too pro-American.

And the Guardian takes a look at India's new gurus - fighting corruption and filling their own pockets along the way.
