IN THE PAPERS

Latest update : 2012-01-09

'Yes, Mistress Angela, I deserve to be punished'

We look at what the papers are saying about Syria and the eurozone crisis. We also turn to the local papers in Nigeria, where there's a general strike underway, and South Africa, which is marking the ANC's 100th anniversary. And there's some un-coverage of "No Pants Day". That's the focus for this Monday 9th January, 2012.

The Lebanese paper L’Orient Le Jour headlines: “Les Arabes s’accrochent, l’opposition syrienne dit stop” (The Arab League insists on pursuing its observer mission, Syria’s opposition activists want it to end).

Britain’s The Observer, sister paper to The Guardian, interviews Sudanese general Mohammed al-Dabi, the general in charge of the Arab League mission in Syria.

The Guardian’s Economics Editor Larry Elliott spots a masochistic trend in the eurozone crisis. “Merkel holds whip hand in orgy of masochism”.

Nigeria’s The Daily Independent headlines: “Tension as nationwide strike begins”.

In South Africa, The Sowetan leads that Zuma is calling for “new leaders” as the ANC marks its centennial.

The Herald South Africa says it is: “Time for the ANC to adapt or die”.

And The Vancouver Sun has a series of photos of commuters with no trousers or skirts on in London, Mexico City, and New York to mark world “No Pants Day” on Sunday.
