'Palestinian independence is inevitable'

In Tuesday's pick of the international press, we look at several different views on the Palestinian bid for statehood, whether Yemen could be the new Libya, and the fallout over phone hacking at the News of the World.

Der Spiegel interviews Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad - who says that whatever happens at the UN, a two-state solution is inevitable.

The Jerusalem Post says that not only must the bid be defeated - but Israel should withhold Palestinian taxes.

Haaretz balances somewhere in the middle - talking about the tricky position of President Obama.

The Atlantic looks at whether Yemen could be the new Libya.

Greek paper Kathimerini says the government is planning a referendum on whether or not to stay in the euro.

And phone hacking is back on British front pages - with the news that Milly Dowler's family are set to accept a 3 million pound settlement from News International.
