Egypt: war of words between SCAF and Muslim Brotherhood

What exactly is the constitutional crisis in Egypt all about, what could the Arab League summit in Iraq achieve, and is there any hope for Kofi Annan's peace plan in Syria? It's all in the international papers.

The Egypt Independent explains what the row between the Egyptian army and the Muslim Brotherhood is really about - while The Arabist says the constitutional chaos raises the risk of a military coup.

The National's cartoon isn't very flattering about the Arab League summit in Iraq - while the Atlantic explains Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is treading a thin line between Syria and his Sunni Arab peers.

Talking of Syria, The Guardian says the Annan peace plan is a sham - but if both sides are convinced they can use it to trap the other, it could lead to real dialogue.
