'Try talking to Hamas'

We turn to testimony of those caught in the centre of Israel's 'Operation Pillar of Defence': an Israeli on a kibbutz near Gaza and a Palestinian family mourning the loss of family members after a missile attack on their house. We also look at coverage of Obama's Asia tour and the prospect of weird goings-on at a mountain in south west France. That's the focus for this world press review on Tuesday 20th November, 2012.

The Israeli paper Ynet News has an opinion piece by a teacher and filmmaker who lives in a kibbutz in the vicinity of Gaza, who says: “Try talking to Hamas”.

The Independent in the UK talks to surviving members of the Daloo family in Gaza City following an Israeli missile attack on their house on Sunday.

A photo of US President Barack Obama kissing Aung San Suu Kyi on the cheek is on the front page of several papers worldwide, including the South China Morning Post.

Cambodia’s Phnom Penh Post has an open letter to Obama, written by a representative of Khmer Rouge victims, calling on him to side with human rights and democracy in Southeast Asia.

And UK paper The Daily Mail reports that French officials have banned access to the Pic de Burgarach mountain in France's south west. Why? To stop fanatics heading there to see if they will be saved by an alien spaceship on the day the Mayan calendar ends: 21st December, 2012.
