Did they kill El Lazca, or not?

We take a look at the Israeli papers’ treatment of the news that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is calling early elections. Meanwhile, Pakistan reacts to the shooting of a 14 year-old girl by members of the Taliban, and Mexico’s drug bust is overshadowed by a missing corpse.

The Jerusalem Post headlines on Netanyahu’s call for elections, while speculating in an editorial what the Prime minister’s dream scenario would be. Haaretz are pessimistic about the prospect of any real opposition; they say he’s got few real challengers.

In Pakistan, the English-language paper Pakistan Today put Malala Yousafza on their front page, with an editorial saying that the government needs to take stronger measures against the Taliban.

Finally, the Mexican authorities told us he was dead, but now the paper Vanguardia is asking “Did they really kill him?” This comes after the body of drug lord Heriberto Lazcano, alias "El Lazca", goes missing. Members of the European press are already speculating about who his successor might be.
