Woman who inspired wartime 'Rosie the Riveter' poster dies aged 96

IN THE WORLD PAPERS - Wednesday, January 24: The US papers react angrily to Turkey's operation in Syria, as questions arise about the US abandoning its once-cherished ally, the Kurds. There's positive reaction to the Oscar nominations, which seem to have learned from lessons past with a more inclusive line-up of nominees. Also, a US tennisman's Twitter past clouds his dream run at the Australian Open and the woman who inspired the "We can do it" wartime poster dies after decades of anonymity.

The Turkish and US press don't see things the same way, this as Ankara attacks the Kurds on the border region with Syria. Is it protection or provocation?

The Oscar nominations are out and for once, it's inclusive and seems to respond to the times. (James Franco, who's accused of sexual harassment, was snubbed).

Also, as Tennys Lundgren continues his dream run at the Australian Open, questions are asked about his Twitter followers (many alt-right haters). Should it matter in sports?

Finally, the woman who inspired the Rosie the Riveter wartime poster dies after decades of anonymity.
