A trillion dollars - the cost of Grexit?

In today's pick of the international press - the possible cost of a Greek exit from the euro, and is Alexis Tsipras a demagogue?

The Guardian puts an intimidating twelve zeroes on its estimation of the cost of Greece pulling out of the euro - while The Independent focuses on the "vulture funds" of speculators they say would profit from it.

The New York Times focuses on Syriza leader Alexis Tsipras - calling him a demagogue with few scruples.

The Washington Post, meanwhile, is looking at Syria - saying the US is starting to co-ordinate the supply of arms to the rebels.
