"Women of Egypt are a red line"

Today's international press roundup focuses on Egypt, after thousands of women took to the streets to march against police brutality. We also look at rising sectarianism in Iraq, and the US row over payroll tax.

Al-Masry Al-Youm says the nascent Egyptian feminist movement should take heart from yesterday's turnout - while al-Ahram says the victims of police brutality are still fighting a propaganda war against the state media.

The New York Times editorial calls on Barack Obama to cancel the 2 billion euro annual subsidy the US gives to Egypt if the army does not leave power. But a controversial Foreign Policy piece argues protesters are as much responsible for violence as the army.

The Guardian says the arrest warrant issued for Iraq's vice president shows that the country is falling into sectarianism - and could soon break up.

The Huffington Post reports on the breakdown of payroll tax talks between Democrats and Republicans - and the bankers who think they have received enough of the blame.
