Science v. Justice: Italian newspapers lament court ruling

Italian newspapers are outraged at a court’s decision to jail a group of scientists for failing to predict an earthquake. In Russia, Pussy Riot are still in the headlines, as two of the young women are sent to remote labour camps, far from their families in Moscow. And an Israeli poll says many Jews want more segregation from Arab Israelis.

Justice and science are on a collision course, says Il Sole 24 Ore, referring to a court’s decision to jail scientists for failing to predict an earthquake. La Repubblica sees science as the unfortunate scapegoat in a country that celebrates both religious miracles and technical advances.

Also, Pussy Riot are back in the headlines: one band member walks free while two others are being sent to remote prison camps. One specialist likens these institutions to 19th century jails.

Finally, most Israelis would accept a form of apartheid – a controversial new poll says many would prefer segregation among Jews and Arab Israelis. Haaretz is disgusted by these findings.
