Riots sealed with a kiss!
In today’s international press review, we talk about a photograph that has gone viral on the web. A couple appears to be kissing amongst a crowd of angry hockey fans rioting after the Stanley Cup.

The former IMF boss is accused of trying to rape a New York hotel maid. He is currently under house arrest and is awaiting trial.
