Was the Libyan mass grave faked?

In today's pick of the international press we look at army defections in Syria, ongoing repression in Bahrain, Libya and kung fu fighting Buddhist nuns in Nepal.

L'Orient Le Jour looks at the lengths Syrian armed forces are going to to suppress the number of soldiers going over to the opposition.

Liberation has been to the site of the mass grave discovered in Libya at the weekend - and found only camel bones.

The Independent says splits between the royal family are emerging in Bahrain.

The Daily Beast says allowing Saudi women to vote is meaningless when they can't leave the house without a male guardian.

And the Guardian looks at kung fu fighting Buddhist nuns in Nepal.
