Ross Perot: 'The US is headed for disaster'

Ross Perot was a gloom and doom merchant on the economy in the 1992 US election when he ran as an independent. At 82, he's back... on the front page of USA Today's international edition, saying Romney and Obama don't know what they are heading into. He bemoans the failure to get anywhere near a balanced budget. We also look at the Vatileaks trial and South Africa's Marikana shooting inquiry. That's the focus for this look at the world press on Tuesday 2nd October, 2012.
