We focus on the Congo crisis as seen by papers in Burkina Faso, South Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo itself and Rwanda. Also, we look at how papers are covering the Israel-Gaza conflict. Plus, what would you do if you found US$900,000 and were in a position to return it to the people who lost it? That's the focus for this edition of the world press review Wednesday 21st November, 2012.

The Burkina Faso newspaper Le Pays is asking: how far the M23 rebels will go?

South Africa’s The Times leads on “Fears for SA troops”.

DRC’s L’Observateur says the M23 rebels are Rwanda-backed and what’s required is dialogue with Kigali.

A comment piece by Oscar Kabatende in Rwanda’s New Times decries Congolese army shelling on the Rwandan town of Gisenyi next to Goma.

On Israel-Gaza, a cartoon in The International Herald Tribune says it remains “An eye for an eye for an eye …”

Egypt’s Al-Ahram reports that Egypt’s Foreign Minister has visited the Gaza Strip.

The Abu Dhabi paper The National argues that Israel’s strategy on security is only heightening dangers for Israel itself.

And The Huffington Post reports on a Singapore cabbie who returned 900,000 US dollars to a Thai couple after they left the money in his taxi.
