Economic crisis: 'selling a kidney to put food on the table'

The International Herald Tribune leads on the black market in human organs. It focuses on a Belgrade couple trying to sell one of their kidneys online. The paper says they are victims of the financial upheaval in Europe. We also look at Syria, Burma and the UK where Diamond Jubilee celebrations are underway. That's the focus for this look at the world's press Friday 1st June 2012.

The International Herald Tribune leads: 'Illegal sale of organs increases as jobs vanish'

The USA Today international edition cartoon shows Kofi Annan forlornly waving an olive branch as Syria's Assad says 'not another tap on the wrist! Now what did I do?'

UAE paper Gulf News has an opinion piece: 'The Annan initiative is a recipe for regime demise'

The Irrawaddy magazine has a cartoon of Aung San Suu Kyi beginning her world tour, first stop Thailand, and an article about how she has stolen the show at the World Economic Forum in Bangkok.

And in coverage of the Queen of England's Diamond Jubilee, Britain's Daily Mirror publishes a 1957 photo of Prince Charles and Princess Anne buried up to their necks in sand. It's from a TV documentary tribute by Charles to his beloved 'Mama'.
