Egypt: 'The army does not hold the answers'

The Egyptian newspaper Tahrir leads: 'The army is on the side of the people, tomorrow Egypt will be without Morsi'. Robert Fisk, writing in The Independent, argues that 'no general is going to depose a president in order to confront another one'. We look, too, at the ongoing spying scandal - one cartoon depicts the US as Mickey at Euro Disney. The Guardian looks at ways to help Snowden. And the WSJ Europe reports that 'Assange plans to run for the senate in Australia'.
