Where's Xi?

We look at the international headlines, as the ongoing crisis in Syria prompts reflection on Bashar al-Assad’s allies, as well as the obstacles facing the Syrian opposition. Meanwhile, tensions are brewing between Japan and China as Tokyo decides to buy a string of contested islands, and Chinese politician Xi Jingping goes off the radar.

The Guardian is reporting on UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi’s mission in Syria, with Iran demanding a role in peacemaking.

The International Herald Tribune tackles the Iranian issue with an editorial on Nuclear Mullahs, and The Wall Street Journal has a long report about the power struggle within factions of the Syrian opposition.

The Japanese government's decision to buy the Diaoyu islands has prompted anger from China. The China Daily headlines on Beijing’s reaction. Their editorial on the issue talks of Japan’s provocation.

The Wall Street Journal’s Asia edition asks Where is Xi?, as a senior party member of the Chinese Communist party goes missing for 10 days.

Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post says the rumour mill had gone into overdrive, and criticises the government for its lack of transparency.
