'The US is no longer a friend to Pakistan'

We look at what to make of the high turnout in Egypt's election, and the angry reaction in Pakistan to the NATO bombing that killed its soldiers. We also look at Britain, where strike action is planned for tomorrow over public sector pensions - but where we do, apparently, have the best chat up lines.

The Arabist takes a look at why Egyptian electoral turnout has been so high, when yesterday the talk was all about how left-wing parties planned to boycott the vote - they remind us Tahrir Square doesn't represent all Egyptians, while the Guardian reminds us that if they choose an Islamist government, then that's democracy.

US right wing paper the Washington Times and the Pakistani daily Dawn both come at the two countries' breakdown in relations from very different angles - but both agree their tense friendship is over.

In the UK, the Guardian defends striking public sector workers on the left - while on the right, both the Times and Telegraph attack George Osborne's latest deficit reduction plan as not austere enough.

Some good news for Brits though - the Daily Mail reports they've got Europe's best chat up lines.
