"Murdoch empire in crisis"

The phone hacking row goes on in Thursday's international papers - as the pressure builds on the very top of News International. In other news, Strauss-Kahn's lawyers say they won't plead guilty to anything, and the US government has stirred a row - by interrogating a terrorism suspect on a boat in international waters.

The New York Times has spoken to Dominique Strauss-Kahn's US lawyer - who says he won't be pleading guilty to anything.

Phone hacking leads all the British papers - the Independent looks at the fallout for Rupert Murdoch's vast media empire, while the Telegraph says it has destroyed the credibility of British Prime Minister David Cameron.

And the Washington Post reveals the US government interrogated a terrorism suspect on a boat in international waters for two months - in breach of the Geneva convention.
