British arms dealers profit from Arab spring

In today's international papers, we look at who's profiting from the Arab spring, why the Notting Hill carnival is more important than ever this year, and if the media coverage of Hurricane Irene was a fuss about nothing.

The Times takes a look at how British arms companies have profited from the Arab spring - to the tune of 35 million euros despite an arms embargo.

The Times of India looks at how Anna Hazare made the Indian government back down - and what that means for democracy.

The Guardian explains why the Notting Hill Carnival is more important than ever this year - and why police are wrong to crack down on it.

And the Daily Beast attacks 24 hour news channels - for overhyping Hurricane Irene.
