The Syrian opposition - a tangled web

Today we look at the complex web of divisions in the Syrian opposition, whether Libya is about to break up, and women's rights in China - on the occasion of International Women's Day.

Foreign Policy reports from Syrian refugee camps in Turkey - where the Turkish army is cracking down on people crossing the border, and the resistance movement is riven with sectarian divisions.

The Guardian says the presence of so many refugees could spark ethnic tensions in Lebanon - while the Independent tries to untangle the complex web of different opposition groups.

The National looks at whether Libya is also about to fragment.

The New York Times has a series of reports for International Women's day - saying women are being forced out of the workplace in China, and also in the UK.
