Burma's Thein Sein 'has devoured memoirs of Obama, Kissinger and Blair'

We look at Turkish and Kurdish press reaction to the murders in Paris of three Kurdistan Workers' Party activists. Also, the Venezuelan press reports on the continued political uncertainty there, as Chavez remains in a Cuban hospital bed and misses the date set for his inauguration. Finally, Time magazine puts the Burmese President Thein Sein on its cover to the headline "Burma Unbound".

International Herald Tribune: "Mystery unfurls in killings of Kurds"

Turkey's Hurriyet Daily: "Who killed 3 PKK members in Paris?"

Kuridistan-Post.eu: "Paris Massacre"

Venezuela's El Universal: "Chavez - after me, the flood"

Venezuela's El Nacional: "Mere formality"

TIME: "Burma Unbound"
