'Iran plots revenge' in event of a strike on Syria

The Independent leads: 'Fear and loathing in St. Petersburg'. It says 'leaders remain as far apart as ever over Syria' at the G20 summit. We look, too, at reactions in the Arab press to the diplomatic stalemate. Iran, meanwhile, is planning to attack US embassies and interests in Baghdad if there is a military strike, according to the Wall Street Journal. And we look at a cartoon in the Chinese press focusing on how some Syrians must feel as they look on.
