Prophet Mohammed cartoons: Freedom of Speech or Dangerous Provocation?

In today's international press review, we focus on Charlie Hebdo's controversial front page.

Also in the papers: a Pakistani accused of blasphemy after he refused to take part in protests, and an unusual love song featuring a beautiful woman, her admirer and...a drone.
