A fragile truce for Syria

The international press is doubtful as to whether a ceasefire in Syria will hold. Also, concerns grow over Sharia law in the north of Mali and the consequences that it will have for the country’s musicians, while a French poll says attitudes towards Islam are growing increasingly hostile.

Lebanese daily L’Orient Le Jour says it is not sure that the ceasefire will hold in Syria; these doubts are echoed by the International Herald Tribune. The Guardian’s editorial calls the scenario “depressingly familiar”.

In Mali, Sharia law has outlawed music and dance - The Guardian reports on the country’s rich musical history. Also, Le Figaro publishes the results of a poll that says French people are growing increasingly hostile towards Islam, and Mitt Romney may have found an electronic advantage to winning the election in the US.
