Has Occupy won the battle of Zuccotti Park?

Could being moved on from camping in Zuccotti Park actually be good news for the Occupy movement? Have they won over mainstream opinion? And should they be worried about being used by politicians? The international papers look at all this, plus Syria, and why pizza is now a vegetable, apparently.

The Independent's veteran foreign correspondent Robert Fisk reckons we shouldn't get too excited about the Arab League or defecting Syrian soldiers - Assad is not going anywhere.

The Huffington Post argues being evicted from Zucotti Park might be the best thing that could happen to Occupy Wall Street - it could help them win over public opinion.

Slate.com thinks they've already achieved their aim - of making Americans see the economic crisis differently, while a piece in the Guardian says they should be worried about getting co-opted by the Democratic Party.

The Guardian also reports on the hedge funds chasing up the world's poorest countries for decades-old debts.

And The Huffington Post says pizza is now officially a vegetable - according to the US Congress.
