Obama the Aussie

Australia's papers go crazy for President Obama - and so does PM Julia Gillard. We also look at Germany's bout of soul searching after the discovery of a neo-Nazi group that killed 10 people, and why the latest Benetton ad has sparked such controversy.

The Guardian says that far from being useless, the Arab League could actually be the deciding factor that pushes Bashar al-Assad out.

The Sydney Morning Herald is thrilled to see President Obama down under - but not quite so sure Australia should be lining up with the US against China.

Australian tabloid the Herald Sun says he's been getting on like an house on fire with PM Julia Gillard - and even learning some Australian.

Der Spiegel looks at Germany's soul searching over the discovery of a neo-Nazi group.

And the Independent asks if shock advertising works - after a Benetton campaign featuring the Pope kissing an imam caused so much controversy it had to be pulled.
